(Katherine @ Grass Stains)
This is going to be a long post. This is the eulogy my dad wrote for my grandmother, his mom, that he read at her funeral on April 1. If by the end of my life my children love me even a tenth as much as he loved her, I will be the luckiest woman in the world. One thing I always appreciated about my mother was that she told you exactly what she thought. So two months ago I read Mom an early version of what you’re about to hear. Those people are not going to sit there and listen to all that stuff about me. ”. So because Mom thought you have short attention spans, today I’m going to be briefer. ’ I’m the beneficiary of wonderful parents---my father, who taught me the value of hard work, of doing my best, the love of math and science, the duty and rewards of serving in the Navy, and the dignity and respect that every human being deserves... And my mother, who taught me to love family and friends, to have an opinion (but to not always voice it), to hold myself and other people accountable in a fair-minded way, to respect family rules and social boundaries, and the joys of a keen sense... My mother was the youngest of 13 born in a wood-frame house in Wahee Neck, delivered by Dr. E. M. Dibble. (In her home today, she has a porcelain clock that belonged to Dr. Dibble.
At Laycock, two miles west of Keighley, at a farm called "The Worlds," lived a close-fisted yeoman named Sharp, at the end of last century and the beginning of this. The story goes that on one occasion old Sharp brought a piece of cloth to the Keighley tailor and told him to make a coat for him out of it. The tailor on measuring the farmer pronounced the cloth to be insufficient to allow of tails to the coat,... The expression stuck to him, and till the day of his death the name of "Three Laps" adhered to him, when it passed to his still more eccentric son. This son, William Sharp, for a while followed the trade of a weaver, but was more inclined to range the moors with his gun than stick to his loom. and the evenings generally found him in the bar of the " Devonshire Inn " at Keighley, the landlord of which was a Mr. Morgan. Young Three Laps was fond of chaffing his boon companions. On one occasion he encountered a commercial traveller in the timber trade, and began his banter by asking him the price of a pair of mahogany "laithe" (barn) doors. After some weeks the invoice of mahogany barn-doors, price upwards of £30, was forwarded to William Sharp. Young Three Laps was beside his wits with dismay, and had recourse to Mr. Morgan, and through his intervention the imaginary mahogany barn-doors were not sent.
