In light of all this crazy, awesome press I’ve received over the last couple of weeks, I can’t help but wish my Papa was here to celebrate it all with us. He loved the limelight and was wonderful with crowds big and small.
If you recall, finding a piece of Brous history for my office was part of my 30 by 30 list. It took some digging, but I found my grandparents original wedding announcement from The Big Lake Wildcat newspaper dated June 12, 1953. How stink’n awesome is that? Luckily I have a best friend who is amazing at photoshop so she’s going to clean it up and I’ll share the final product with you soon.
My Papa would have been 85 yesterday. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him and smile. He was always the most proud, the most supportive, and gave the best hugs. I miss his hands, his gentle guidance, and his music. He was a wonderful piano player and watching him play was mesmerizing.
