All we have is this moment...

"A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart. ~Author Unknown"

J's grandpa passed away on April 17, 2012, leaving behind his wife of 66 years. We are both heart broken by the loss of this wonderful man. Since I started dating J nearly 20 years ago, I have felt completely a part of his family. His grandfather was simply wonderful, caring, and welcoming. He is dearly missed.

Being away from home at times like this is very difficult. We have been reminiscing about J's grandpa over the last few days, cherishing his memory. He and grandma enjoyed a trip to Venice years ago. As we wander the streets and float down the canals, we wonder if we have glanced upon the same buildings.

"The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children's children. It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future." ~Charles and Ann Morse
