Until Next Time, Granda

On July 4th, I lost my first grandparent. Now, don't get me wrong, I know that to have made it almost 35 years having all four of my grandparents still living is a great thing but its still sad that he is gone. I was able to spend about 20 hours with him his last week and for someone dying of dementia he was able to recognize me even though he was pretty out of it. I was the oldest grandchild and got to spend the most time with my grandparents over the years because we lived so close. I feel sorry for my two cousins who never got to know the younger versions of my grandparents when they were physically able to do so much more and I am sorry my grandmother lost her husband, one week shy of their 58th wedding anniversary
