  1. Patty, love what you are saying, yet it would really insightful to know the one question.

    I’d ask my Dad, “What is the meaning of life?”

  2. Then it would be: Grandpa I’m sorry I didn’t really listen to all your wonderful stories that you used to tell us. I thought you would be around forever. Please tell them to me again. I promise to listen intently this time.

    Not really a question though is it.

  3. Patty, correct, not really a question. What is challenging (and potentially enlightening) is if you only had one question what would it be?

  4. I have thought about this all day and the only question I have for my grandfather is: Is it true great Nana would let you skin the animals you trapped as a boy in the cellar? Even the skunks?

    He always told us about his trapping animals along the river by their home before heading off for school. To this day I can’t imagine living in a house that smelled of skunk, or worse.

    So that is my question. Not so profound.

  5. What is so awesome about life is we are free to be who we want to be and do what we want to do. And in the end, we get to decide if we have been happy with that. 🙂
