Farewell Grandpa Holloway

My dear Grandpa Holloway passed away in March. We will miss him! But in the mean time, we can celebrate his great sense of humor (and hilarious stories), his faith in God, dedication to family, and the love he had for his sweet wife Nola. I was so happy that I was able to be home for his funeral. It was wonderful to see long lost cousins and visit with aunts and uncles. The speakers and music at the service were wonderful. Overall it was a wonderful celebration of Roland Holloway.
My Grandpa was a master at tooling leather. Some of his best work was displayed at the funeral. When Grandpa was a young man and in the TB hospital, he sold his leather work to help provide for his parents and younger siblings. This Indian Chief is the cover of a photo album he made for his young bride.
