With Love…always

A few days ago I lost one of the most important people in my life, my grandad. He was 95.

He was mischevious, funny, lively, admirable, caring, loving and one of the most amazing people you could ever know.

Not only did he cheat at cards and you knew he cheated but couldn’t prove it, it didn’t matter. The games were always filled with laughter and glee that a few pennies extra in his pocket were nothing important.

Talk about tall tales. Every telling of one of his tales got more and more outrageous

Right up to the end despite his poor health he would look at you and focus on you with love.
