Journaling reads: There’s something so sentimental about the rough hand of a grandfather holding onto the soft, sweet hand of his grandchild. There is such a stark contrast between the two hands. One has experienced life . . . sometimes the harshness of life. The other hand is so soft and perfect in its newness. Papaw’s hand has seen a lot of hard work in his life. Scrapes and cuts are nothing new. This verse from a poem by Honoria Groves is so true: “Of the joys that may come to mortals this side of the Better Land, the dearest, the sweetest, the purest, is the touch of a baby's hand.”
Journaling on photo frame reads: Dan and Kinley Ketcham, on Memorial Day, May 28, 2012. Kinley is about 8 months old. That’s Papaw’s Vietnam service ring on his hand. Most of the color is worn off the ring and I’m not even sure he can get it off his finger.
