To my many friends,

 

Reality is starting to sink in.

Let me just cover the uniforms and balls...

Written by Andrea from little notes, pictures and emails from Vic... 

December 25, 2013 Vic took his son Dean and grandkids on another adventure, or maybe they took him, either way, the youngest of his grandchildren, Brody, reminded Grandpa Vic of his phrase 'The best do what the rest are not prepared to do.' as they were exploring and bushwacked through to a creek bed. 

Vic, my dad, sends me little notes and I sort of piece together what the adventures looked like. I un...
