This is a beautiful rendition of a wonderful family tradition. You express well your experience and how much it means to you.

Just a small suggestion to watch your punctuation; comma usage.

Nice:)

Awww...what a beautiful tribute to your beloved grandfather. I'm sure he is so proud of you and is smiling right now. Thank you for sharing this powerfully touching entry.

God bless~
This is beautiful on so many levels. First there is the innocence of children gathering together and playing in a way they probably weren't able to play on any other day. Then the boys grow into men and get a peek into the world of manhood. Then when Grandpa dies there is a quiet agreement that somehow these stories get passed along. You did a great job of writing this story and it touched my heart and I'm sure many others.
