Yesterday - May 10, 2013 - was a very special day that I have been anticipating for some time. My Grandpa, Harold Brown, was born 100 years ago. A lifelong resident of Sac City, Iowa, he was an attorney, husband to my Grandma June Brown, father of my mother Sara Eichhorn and of my uncles Charles Brown and Max Brown. Four grandchildren: me, Cuyler Brown, Molly Brown, and Tyler Brown. Five great grandchildren: Caitlyn and Charles Eichhorn and CJ, Harrison and Palmer Brown. He died twenty-eight years ago when I was in high school, but I've never forgotten him and fondly remember him. Before a stroke debilitated him the last six years of his life, visits to their house would include hanging out at his office, sitting with him on the torch-lit patio at night, going to Ft. Dodge to Target (which I thought was the only Target around at the time), visiting Lake Okoboji in northern Iowa, and going to Minnesota to see my Uncle Charles and Aunt Pat. Happy 100th Birthday, Grandpa!
