Remembering Grandpa Dave
By Beth Beutler
  

1     I was blessed with a special grandpa. He was one of my best friends. For a while, we lived on the same property. I could walk a short distance from my house to Grandpa's house, and there he was. He loved to spend time with me, his favorite, and only, grandson.
 
2     He liked to sit outside. He also had a workshop in a shed. He was so neat. He kept all his tools in order. He had screws and nails in labeled bins. For quite a while he collected baseball caps. He kept them neatly arranged. He wore a different one every day. I think his favorites were anything to do with being a grandparent.
 
3     Grandpa had a fire pit and liked to build campfires. In fact, when he was younger, he had been a fireman. My mom remembers hearing him run down the stairs in his boots when he went on a fire call. When he got a little older, he worked at the local fire station. I got to help him. He cleaned the trucks and just liked to be there.
