Storyline

Tommy's mind is not on the canoe time trials for the upcoming races as his paternal grandfather, George, is coming for a visit. George gave Tommy the hand made oar he uses for canoing. Tommy and George are close, especially as George is Tommy's only connection to his long deceased father, who he never knew. When Tommy arrives home expecting to see his grandfather, he is dismayed to learn that his grandfather has just passed away. Although everyone in their house is saddened by the news, it hits Tommy the hardest, he who does not express his grief in tears but rather anger. Tommy goes about memorializing his grandfather in his own way, which in large part entails giving away all his material possessions and retreating from life. Laurel and Jesse in particular hope they can give Tommy a better understanding of how he can more productively remember his grandfather. Written by Huggo
