One thing my Grandfather "Gramp" told me once was "You are never ready for it". At the time this advice was topic specific but I now see and realized in the moments after hearing of his passing that this was a universal truth. We can prepare, worry and fret but we are never truly ready. This makes giving 110% that much more important for success.
Gramp was the backbone of my family and responsible for the setting in my youth where most of my best memories play out. Thank you Gramp! You will be missed
