This past weekend my Grampie passed away. His passing was not unexpected as he lived a full life of 92 years and went peacefully. The loss has been a catalyst for the Plotkin side of my family to get together at my folks' house in Connecticut. Being with all my aunts, uncles and first cousins has been amazing. We've been spending the days noticing our similarities and remembering the good times, while making new memories. Grampie, you launched a great clan.
