This week has just been a mess, and not just because of the holidays. On Monday I found out that my Grampy passed away. He lived a long wonderful life of 87 years and I’m drawing comfort from that. I’m so thankful and happy that he got to meet Jesse and be with us on our wedding day.
I’m also grateful for the beautiful memories I have with the two of them. For the times he and my Granny drove out to visit me in Richmond and have lunch with me at school. The days that I would stay with them during my summer breaks, and we would go to the library or sit outside and listen to the kids on the baseball field behind their house. My Granny and I always watched the same movie when I’d visit She-Ra (the female version of He-Man). They were such wonderful and kind people, always asking about the rest of my family and giving me little gifts to take home to my siblings. I miss them both so much, Granny is still here physically but Alzheimer’s has taken her away mentally.
I’ve been so amazingly blessed to have the best grandparents that anyone could ask for (and I’m super blessed because I have 3 sets!) I miss you Grampy, but I know you and Papa are watching over me. <3
