my grandparents are still married since may 1961, together since the early 50's. they live seperate but see each other every day, I drive my grandpa
to see my grandma in her home. she has diabetes and breast cancer, he has alzheimers and parkinsons.
I know the inevitable is coming and I brace myself for it, it feels like the hole in my heart is already in place though.
she always mentions that it's not too soon where she will pass. "oh you can have my TV, my cat" etc..I just try and laugh it off, because I know I
won't be laughing when the time actually comes and goes.
they raised me and succeeded where my so-called parents failed, for that I am grateful beyond measure, for the rest of my life. my grandpa taught me
what being a man means without having to tell me a word, and my grandma has taught me compassion by showing it to me endlessly.
