#FarrisStory: great grandfather Axel

"My great grandfather Axel was an inspiration to me. He came into the country from Sweden through Ellis island and was so excited when he could read an English word as he saw the billboard for Copenhagen tobacco. He owned a hardware store in rural Minnesota and was an inspiration to many. Even well into his 80s he would go fishing and pick up day old bread at the bakery to bring to the towns nursing home so they had plenty of good things to eat." - Steve
