f is for fundador family haiku poem

he liked his brandy
hot liquid for cold, cold nights

fundador brandy was one of the favorite drinks of my grandfather. unfortunately, he'd often end up with a terrible headache after. yet it was something he was not going to so easily give up. :)

he passed away 2 days ago.
