Writer's Block: Do you remember?

What is your earliest memory?

One of my earliest memories was running through my aunt's house to my grandfather's room. He was lying in bed and my sister and I were happy to visit him. My aunt was standing by the head of the bed. The light coming through the window was bright. Grandpa waved to us. I know now that he was dying of lung cancer. I couldn't have been more 3 as my next vivid memory is sitting in Mom's lap at his funeral. That would have been late October 1963.

It all blurs together with funeral of John F. Kennedy as I remember the funeral in November, 1963. I've got it tagged in my memory because everybody in my world was sad
