Our March author is Harold Battenfield. He is the grandfather to 6 grandchildren and the father to two daughters. He has been married for fifty six years. He holds three patents. He is the author of Braiding Generations: A Grandfather Breaks the Code. After he retired from medicine, he returned to college to learn how to write and has 39 college hours in writing. “A defining event occurred when I was seven years old and I spent a week with my grandparents, the longest seven days in my life. I never forgot. Our society carries an unwritten code that implies a grandkid’s friends are more interesting and fun than a grandparent—grandparents are boring. I broke the code when I learned how to be more fun than their friends and I entered a world of unlimited possibilities. Breaking the code became my goal to compensate for not understanding how to live with loss,” said Battenfield.
