As a child, I enjoyed spending time with my Granddaddy Crain. He was my hero. Even though he died shortly before my 10th birthday, I was able to spend a lot of time with him. During my preschool years, I was able to spend a week with my grandparents every couple of months or so. He always had time for me. I  enjoyed the time we spent together.

  4. A chauffeur drove your granddaddy to school each day during his senior year in high school–which was 11th grade in 1918-1919.

    His chauffeur had 4 legs, a mane, and tail.

    Blackie navigated the 5 miles each way through snow, sleet, rain, and heat allowing Grandaddy time to study as they traveled.

    The little boy whose mother thought that he had not learned enough to go to second grade had to repeat first grade, but was graduated as valedictorian of his senior class.
