And so we say goodbye...

Grandpa (Gene) Burlingame passed away this past Saturday

(Beau, Jeremy, Joe, and Gene)

"While both joy and sorrow are fleeting, and often intertwined, love has the power to overcome both. And love can last forever."

One of my fondest memories about my Grandpa is the bike he built for me; my very first bike and the one that I learned to ride on. All he asked was the colors I wanted (red and black) and within no time I had a new (to me) bike built from refurbished parts. Interestingly, building and restoring bicycles is now one of my favorite hobbies.
