Today would have been my Grandpa Shauf’s 100th birthday.  I only have one regret in my whole life, and that is when my Grandpa died, I skipped his funeral.  I had some college thing… i don’t even remember what it was.  What I do remember is that I was young and dumb and didn’t know what I was doing, i didn’t realize the disrespect I was showing to my family… There is really not a whole lot worse a person can do, especially to a member of your own family, than forget.  What’s the take away?  Funerals are important, don’t ever skip them, unless you are a sadist and want regret to be a big part of your life.  

Anyways, my Grandma had Polio, and If my Grandpa knew that people today were refusing vaccines (which, in the town I live in, has caused a measles outbreak, which is concerning to the un-vaccinated, for example, kids under the age of one, aka, many of my friends babies, and my own!), I don’t think he’d be too impressed.  In fact, i assume that he’d be pretty angry.
