Tess,

I cannot believe that it has been a year that has passed. It is incredible to think that life keeps going on sometimes, without our beloved family with us.

I can only imagine how vast the ocean feels when you'd like to do something so simple as to comfort your grandmother.

It is a lovely thought you've had to celebrate the man that he has been to your lives, and to recollect and share with your grandmother. I'm sure she'll be very grateful to share and touched by your thoughtfulness.

My grandparents were married 62 years before we lost my grandfather. At the time we'd been married 2 years. At our 1 year anniversary, my husband said in awe to my grandparents that we'd been married only one minute to their full hour. Now it has been 10 years that he's been gone and I still cannot fathom it - I cannot imagine how my grandmother must feel.

You are such a sweet soul, Tess. Your grandfather is very proud of you, I'm certain.

xoxo

T,
I am booking a flight to go and see Gran while I read your blog. I am going to go and spend a few days with her at the end of the month. I plan on taking her for those walks, and to sit by the beach and listen to her share her stories of her great love.
Occasionally when I call her now, she weeps quietly on the phone when she speaks of Grandad. But she is a strong little lady and continues to get stronger and stronger.
Your blog is beautiful and I am envious of the love you and MC have. I guess we all can only wish to share the years and love that Gran and Grandad shared.

I miss you Grandad and I know life is better where you are now. Take peace in knowing that we are looking after Gran , and we take comfort in knowing that you are no longer in pain.
I love you T,
Auntie P xoxoo

Oh, I am sure it was tough on your gran. On my parent's wedding anniversary which was about six months after my dad's death, I got a call from my mother that just tore out my heart. I wanted to get on a plane and fly out to be with her. But I was a student with limited funds with exams approaching and I couldn't. I just talked to her on the phone and let her cry.

Just let her know you are there for her. It will help.
