Remembering Gramps

I just got home to the sad news that Burr Gould passed away on Friday, at 92.

But you can get a pretty good idea of who he was by the 35 family members named as survivors in today's notice, and by the line, "He leaves behind a 2006-07 season pass at Greek Peak Ski Area and a new pair of skis."
