My grandfather on my dad's side had a disabling stroke when I was about eight, but lived for another decade. He had a little yard stick he could smack against shit to basically communicate because he lost most mobility except for very limited movement in his hand. Every damn time I went to see him he'd smack that shit everywhere to say hi. Even now a decade and a half after he's been gone, I never felt more loved that when I saw him, even if I knew he wasn't totally there. Give a hug to your loved ones.
What a fantastic memory!
Grandpa knew what he was about.
Thanks for sharing!
Grandpas and grannies are the best people rn on Earth and no one can make me change my opinion
Edit: Well, based on the answers this got, I comprehend not everyone had a great time with their grandparents, or maybe they didn’t had the pleasure to meet them, I’m sorry to hear how some of you had a really bad time with them, I originally posted this comment to appreciate the grandparents and grandmothers out there that deserve the love they need. Thanks Reddit, now I understand that not everyone has the same life, the same family, the same friends, Apologies for any inconvenience
Here’s a good grandparent comment: my grandmother was amazing, took care of my grandfather every day after he was paralyzed from a stroke at 35. Still made time for her grandkids and took us places. She was a seriously wonderful and loving person.
That's a pretty blanket statement. Mine are toxic as fuck. The further I stay from nearly all my family, the healthier my mental health is.
I ran out of sets a while back. They all died.
Yeah kinda weird not knowing anyone in my family really but awell. Most died when I was 5-9 so I bearly remember any of them.
Mine too actually. I have absolutely 0 extended family on either my mom or dads side. It's a weird feeling when my gf and I go to her house for events because she has so much extended family, while my gatherings are like 5 people max.
I feel you there. Except it's not even extended family; all the family I know and am comfortable being myself around is my dad. Meanwhile my gf has a lot of family members she talks about and I'm really anxious about meeting them all x.x
It's my first time 😅
I'm NC with my parents, so all the aunts n cousins too. I also live 1k miles away. Dating is REALLY hard :(
My grandpa was completely deaf, and only spoke in ASL. He died when I was 9 or 10. I never learned sign language, and so I never really got to know him. I remember how much he loved me, though, and how gentle he always was. I wish he could have stayed longer, but I'm glad I got some time with him.
Same.. One set when I was too young to really know them and the other set when I was old enough to know how much I lost. Both suck in their own way but the latter still hurts a decade later
My parents are greats grandparents to my daughter. Just I wish they would stop instilling religious piety into her in the form of quick language lessons.
Bet you mine are worse lol. Once had a criminal defense attorney ask me how many security cameras I have in my house because my gramps might send some thugs, no hyperbole.
The local newspaper quotes another criminal defense attorney saying, "/u/velders01's grandfather is the most evil man I've met in my life and my profession involves meeting many." Thought that was funny so i messaged that newspaper article to my closest friends.
What happened i m curious
Yep. My grandfather is awful
i have only grandmas left and my grandma on my mums side is best both my grandpas died at like 70 of smoking
My dads mom stole money from me and got mad at me when my dad told her to give it back. My moms dad ran out on her and her brother when they were babies.
I'm glad yours were good.
I think the best version of this statement would be: All those Grandpas and Grannies that people love and care for can often be the most loving and caring in return.
Mitch McConnell is a grandpa.
Shouldn’t apologize, not your fault people couldn’t recognize a hyperbolic statement. Anyone reasonable would never assume you actually meant ever single person who is a grandparent was an amazing person.
Good for you! Mine speak a different language and we meet twice a year.
It’s okay. Glad you have stellar grandparents. I had two really nice and smart grandads and they both died when I was around 8 years old and 9 years old. Cancer. My grandmothers don’t really know each other, but they are both mean people. Don’t really have a relationship with either. One I hadn’t talked to in 10 or more years and then saw her and it’s been over 7 more. That being said, your comment didn’t offend me one bit.
I’ll be honest, my favorite part of this post was stumbling on it just now after everyone clearly disagreed.
“I love this! You all should too; no exceptions!” to “Okay, so I’ve been told there are quite a few valid exceptions...”
Hey look a cute post about grand parents. I'm now going to use my bad personal experience to complain about the post.
Critical hit take 9000 wholesome right in the feels
I think about this all the time now. My parents had me when they were 35 and I barely knew my grandparents before they died. I just had my first baby at 35. I might not ever know my grandchildren
You never know! People are living longer and longer. You might still have the chance to meet your grandchildren one day :)
Don’t let your elders be elder orphans.
I agree with you so much. some people tend to just “leave” them. Fucked up
I did some volunteering work at an old folk’s home once. Man, it is sad. They basically know that they’re gonna die there and not at home. It’s like an orphanage but for old people. Some of them are angry and sad people; some of them pull through by being friendly with the others.
That’s not the way to live the last of your days.
In your last moments, it just hurts not to be with your loved ones. It makes me really sad knowing this reality.
Yeah my Grandad passed the end of last year. Seeing him the way he was made me think (it'll be bad anyway) how awful it must feel to have nobody there for you in your final time
I work at a nursing home and so I see this every day.
Some families do visit the residents every day and I'm so happy they do. It makes it much easier for them.
But a handful of them just don't have any family visit them at all and it makes me so sad.
I’m a welder who builds hydraulic machinery for construction equipment and I’d consider my job easy when compared to working in a nursing home.
My mother died in hospice care when I was 13, my heart would break to see families lose people the same way.
My Granddad passed in hospital in 2016 having caught an infection. A couple of years before that, after exhausting every other avenue such as home care (we just couldn't keep up with the expense) we had to move him into a home as he had awful dementia and Alzheimer's and was unable to walk any longer. None of us could lift him ( I have a very very small local family, me, my mum, dad and grandma).
My Grandma would visit him every single day without fail. Me and my mum would visit him 2-3 times a week or more often if our schedules allowed. I would spend as much time with him as possible, even though a lot of the time he didn't even register we were with him... it was just nice to be in his presence.
Having gone to the home so often we realised how many people's families had just deserted them. They had family but their family never came to see them... those were the people who didn't last very long after moving into the home... they just gave up trying. It broke my heart.
Sometimes life doesn't make doing what you want to do possible - none of us ever wanted to have my Gramps in a home but we just didn't have the means to avoid it. But how you can just dump your family members there and not even go to see them... I will never understand it.
I work at a nursing home and the thing that gets me the worst is that some people are there dying and their families never come visit them even though the pts have stated that the family lives in town. Even if I lived out of town I would be there by my parents side if they were dying.
Nurse here. We had a resident whose daughter and adult granddaughter lived a block away from the facility--you could literally see the house from a certain window. Said family never came to visit the woman, not once in the years I worked there. So damn depressing.
Niece here, whose grandma were in a nursing home because of a brain tumor. My grandmother lived 1.5 hours away from us. Three of my four uncles and my aunt lived like 15min away from the nursing home. The one uncle who lived an hour away and my mother and me were the only ones who tried to visit four until six times a week. As you can imagine, the other fours only made it maybe three times a month. We were the last three family members (including my grandfather who was always there) she saw the evening before she died. It's hard to read stories like yours and not feel sad again.
I am sorry about your story, I am approaching my 30th birthday and my parents are getting older. I can see that and it makes me sad. I also live 6 hours away from them and this could turn into a huge problem when they will be really old and in need of assistance. I honestly don't have a plan for this scenario and neither do they.
Yeah it's rough. My area is a heavy Hispanic population and the Hispanic pts families are so involved and always come with the family member down to the therapy room. I'm impressed by their tight knit families.
Nephew here. Some people are assholes and have to sleep in the bed they made.
I don’t understand this. My grandmother moved in with my mom and I like 15 years ago. She was not a nice person. She was very manipulative and always tried to play the victim in any situation, even if she was 1000% in the wrong. In February, she was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer that had metastasized to all of her bones. She stayed at home with us taking care of her 100% until we literally couldn’t care for her anymore - she was on 4 pills of oxycodone every half hour and it wasn’t even touching her pain. It wasn’t until we knew there was nothing we could do to even help her that we got her moved into an inpatient hospice care facility. Once she was moved in, she was on so many pain meds that she was basically unconscious the entire time she was there. Even then, my mom or I or both of us were by her side 24/7. We moved her in Saturday and she died Wednesday night, exactly one month after she was diagnosed.
She wasn’t a nice person by any means, and I don’t really have any good memories of her. Even nice memories are tainted by memories of the kind of person she was to us. But no one deserves to be alone at the end of their lives.
It must have been hard to stay with your grandma knowing how she treated you...at least, it’d be hard for me honestly. You and your mom are wonderful, strong people
Asked my wife if she’s planning to have me committed let me know so I got time to get my life in order 👋⚰️. NFW I’m getting bed sores
They aren’t old folks homes!. For some the only alternative is assisted living. What’s sad is we have a health care system that is unable to care for the sick and elderly properly and too many fall through the cracks.
I dunno, my parents are pretty horrible and I don’t really plan on continuing my relationship with them after I leave the house. There’s only so many beatings you can take before you never want to see someone again.
Yeah, I feel like this other side doesn't get mentioned very often. I get that it's depressing to know that family members aren't visiting their folks in the homes, but there's always a reason why. My parents worked full time when my grandparents were in hospice and we were still very young, about 12 and 13. It's difficult to visit as often as you'd like. And then there's family history. My dad didn't make it to retirement, but if he did, I really doubt I could bring myself to visit him. He was a one of those people who treated strangers better than he did family.
Its a difficult thing for me. Everyone in my family has treated me like trash cause I have a sexuality they don't approve of. People might think its fucked up that my grandparents and parents are gonna get old and be alone. And you know what? It is fucked up that they would try to do that to someone much more vulnerable than they ever will be, and I can't help but feel the same for a lot of these so called 'elder orphans'. What did they do that made their entire family estrange them?
Life should be about making yourself and others around you happy - but if someone purposefully goes out of their way to make your day worse, its ok to leave them in the dust.
Hey, I know people who’s family won’t accept them due to their sexuality. If they don’t accept you for who you are, and can’t understand that you aren’t choosing anything, they aren’t your real family.
Family =/= relatives
I'm really sorry that your family treated you badly based on your sexuality, that's not right. I hope you've been able to find a community or group of friends that support you, and can be your chosen family!
You don’t know how it was to be raised by that person maybe your mom left you when you were 10 and only came back into your life to try and guilt trip you into giving her money
Your post brought me back to the lunches I’d have with my Grannie before she died.
Those were very special times for both of us. Thanks
I’m estranged from my parents and I’m an only child. This is something that could absolutely happen to them but they were abusive my whole childhood and try to control my life. While it’s sad when it happens to good people, I can’t help but wonder what parents did to make their kids not care about them like this.
The sword cuts both ways. Yes, some people absolutely craft the ending of being alone by being awful. However, sometimes the kids are the awful ones. Some parents create awful kids by being bad parents, some kids are just assholes by nature. Also, I’ve known so many good people whose kids don’t even seem like they are that terrible of people but they get busy with their own lives and forget about their parents. And we all know families that drift apart for no real reason or for a really dumb reason. And of course, there are people who aren’t your parents that may be alone. The teacher who mentored you and whose children are gone. The aunt who never had any children. The neighbor who never had anyone. There’s a lot of reasons people become elder orphans. The point is, if you have an elder in your life who you care about and who deserve to not be alone, don’t let them live out their last years alone.
I like to think I'm at the very least, not a bad person. I still don't spend any time with my grandparents.
Like I think I last saw my Grandma 3 - 4 years ago. I'm not avoiding her but I am avoiding my family in general and that kind of means I avoid her by proxy.
On the otherhand though I just have no relationship with her. Like I remember being a kid and going round their house and being scared of them because they seemed strict. Then my grandpa died when I was like 10 or something. And then I grew up into an awkward socially scared teen who could barely communicate anyway.
There just wasn't any bonding time and I just don't feel any connection to her. I'm sure she is a lovely person but she lives 3 - 4 hours away, we share no common interests and any kind of conversation would just be stunted and difficult.
I yearn to have this kind of grandparent connection I see in movies and tv and reddit but I've honestly never seen something that seems so fictional compared to real life. Maybe the UK is just different. The only people I've met who spend time with their grandparents here seem to have a strong non-British culture influence in their family.
I think about myself in this way. I don’t have kids, no current boyfriend. It’s a little scary.
NO I CAN'T READ THIS omg I'm too scared of dying alone, but I also don't want to be in a shitty marriage
Bruh why are my eyes sweating so fucking bad
Fuck, I never thought about it but I think this might be my future.
This is why I’m so willing to be a caretaker for my 96 year old grandmother-IL. Even though I get damn tired working 5 extra hours a day for her cleaning dirty commodes, doing all the cooking, laundry, and dishes after working my normal job, it means the world to me when she smiles and thanks me ten times for everything, even if I just sat and knit with her.
I don’t plan on ever having kids so I hope one of my nieces or nephews likes me enough to wipe my butt in 70 years.
I try to spend one full day a month with my grandma. I know it’s not often enough, but it means so much to us both just to spend the day playing cards or driving around town.
Thats still something man. people arent here forever
Enjoy it - I wish I had had the chance even to do that. The time I spent with my Grandparents was a gift that I'll never forget.
I wish I could spend more time with my Grandma. I moved across country for a job but I'm trying my hardest to move back so I can spend time with her.
I love her so much and it is hard seeing her change so drastically after my Grandpa passed.
Me too! I moved couple hours away from home for a job and whenever it get tough at work I wish I could just move back home closer to my grandma and spend the day with her.
Now and then I will take extra leave to visit her and she will be so happy to see me. Gosh, I love my grandma.
I've been wanting to do this with many of my family members for such a long time. But the culture I come from is really weird, they'd all just rather suffer in their homebrews, stuffing me with food and complaining about never-ending shitstorms (=usually other family members) that is their lives.
For example my grandad is a miserable fuck (that I very much love), and if I took my grandma for a dinner date he'd give her shit (calling her "Mrs. fancypants" and stuff like that) for years to come. And of course his male ego would never allow him to come along. The universe that is my home is one that is so, so far away from anything I know how to do.
I can't wait to be back in my hometown to do this with my grandma. T_T
I can't wait to see my grandma again.
I love this. When I was in college, my grandfather had Dementia, which eventually became Alzheimer’s. Papa was always skinny and lanky, but later in life, he’d complain nothing tasted good and would hardly eat. When I was home from school, my weekly “job” for the school holidays was to take one of my dad’s sports cars over to Papa’s house, pick him up and take him to lunch. We’d go to a local 50’s themed diner. My 6’3”, 135 lb grandfather would polish off a patty melt, side of fries and a butterscotch milkshake (glass + refill shaker). It was probably the bulk of his calories for the week. After lunch, we’d walk over to the record store and browse the used LPs and he’d tell me stories about seeing Dave Brubeck or party tracks they used to play in the 60s. I usually took the scenic route back to my grandparents house so we could cruise, both because I liked spending the time with him and because I knew this was the only time I would get to drive the fun car. I miss those days. Cherish these days while you have them.
This is a sweet post. I think many folks skipped it for lack of line breaks - but I I love the imagery of you and your Granddad looking over records and chatting about Brubeck.
This is honestly beautiful, my grandfather passed away 2 weeks ago and I wish I could have done more things like this with him. He was my last remaining grandparent and now I’m feeling a sense of regret. Sure he knew we all loved him but I wish I could have made more memories with him.
yeah, people arent here forever. thats what scares me
I lost my grandpa, my last remaining grandparent, 3 days ago. I feel the same sense of regret, and a strong sense of guilt that won't go away. Guilt for not spending enough time with him while he was still here. Even though distance put it out of my hands, I still feel guilt. I miss him.
What a great smile! I miss my grandpa so much.
I havent seen mine in 4 years as well :((
Wish I had any kind of relationship with my grandfathers. My mother's dad died in a car accident 5 years before I was born, so naturally I never met him. I did meet my father's dad once when I was 9, but he was a bitter, cold, foul mouth racist piece of human garbage...and I never saw him again after that day.
I miss my grandparents. All of them :(
Me too, especially my grandmother who was very sweet.
She passed away a few years back, yet whenever I get a package delivery it still reminds me of the parcels she would send with her baked goodies, homemade quilts, and always $10 or $20 she didn't have to spare but gave anyway.
She did the same for all her other grandchildren, giving up more than we realized at the time in order to be there for us even at a distance.
I wish I could of done that for either sets of my Grandparents. My Grandparents on my Dad’s side were dead well before I was born.
My Grandparents on my Mama’s side were either dead or too sick to go out for a meal by the time I was old enough to do such a thing on my own; and due to drama, I didn’t even meet them until I was 8-10.
There’s also my Nuna and Papa (Great-Aunt/Uncle who took over the role of Grandparent on my Dad’s side) who I would love to sit down with one more time to just chat. I miss them. A lot.
This Granddad is a lucky guy!
Go visit your loved ones. One day they’ll be gone and you’re going to regret not spending more time with them. Even if it’s just a phone call. It will make their day, and maybe even yours.
^ People arent here forever. Im sorry for your lost one brother
He looks super dapper in that shirt too! Super cool 🤙
And the food just tastes better
Grandpas are the absolute best! You have a best friend for life
It's true. My Gramma spends all week getting ready for a small visit from her grandkids. It makes her whole week. I adore spending time with her so much. I wish I could see her everyday.
When I first moved out of my parents place I invited my Dad out to lunch once I had settled into the neighbourhood. We were never close, but we always loved each other (think Hank Hill and Bobby Hill). Over lunch we'd never gotten along better or easier. I went home ecstatic that I was gonna get the relationship with my Dad I'd always wanted.
The next week he was diagnosed with cancer and his health went downhill immediately and fast. Within a couple of months, walking was out of the question for him.
That lunch was the best time I'd ever had with him, and it was the last time I was with him that he seemed healthy. At the time I didn't think it was the biggest deal, now I can't imagine a lunch being bigger.
I love seeing posts like this but man, does it make me miss my grandfather. I'd give anything to have one more lunch with him.
Same here. My granddad was hilarious. I have so many good memories of family dinners with him. I miss him so much.
This a great reminder, going to start doing this at least once a month, old folks already think no one cares about them.
Im happy this helped
Not to be a downer, but I swear I've seen this exact same story posted by different people before. I even remember the profile pic from the last time it was posted and the girl looked nothing like this one.
Things like this make me real sad I never had grandparents to do cutesy wholesome things
Im sorry to hear that man
I really wish my grandad hadn't passed when I was 8. I hear he was an awesome guy. Would've loved to have spent time with him.
This is so sweet, grandparents are awesome. I'll never take mine for granted, I was 2 years old when my mum got together with my step dad and his parents didn't hesitate to set up a savings account for me just like they had for their other grandchild to include me in everything. I got me some kick ass grandparents to sweeten the already winning deal of getting a dad too.
We all know he would've been up by 7am any other day
Most productive people are lol. 99% of the seniors I know are up early enough they are tapping their fingers waiting for the paper to arrive.
We all need a grandparent who we mean this much to.
I used to go visit my grandparents 2.5 hours away as often as I could. I'd spend the evening chatting and reminiscing with them, spend the night, go to church and go out for breakfast the next day. It was such a special time, enjoying their company as an adult. I will never regret choosing those visits over time with friends or lovers.
My grandpa has been gone for two years and I would love to be able to go back and visit one more time.
Cherish your grandparents, guys (assuming you're lucky and have good ones.) Their clocks are ticking. Take the time while you can.
My eyes sweating
I wish I’d met my grandpa so I could’ve done this with him, so sweet
This is so wonderful. It makes me miss my grandparents like crazy.
Bruh this legit made me smile and tear up...
My grandpa just hates me because I’m fat lol. My grandmas nice tho
must be nice not having racist grandparents
Can't relate sadly. My grandfather on my mum's side doesn't talk to us after his wife died and the ones on my dad's side don't like me.
Gotta cherish those moments with people who love you!
I wish I had grandparents to do this with. Would've been dope
I just get all the feels for the elderly, everything they do is so wholesome and it’s great 👍
This hits so hard because my grandpa used to take me to lunch all the time when I went over to see him and my grandma
I miss him everyday:(
I love when grandchildren respect and are equally respected by their grandparents. Relationships with elders like that are so enriching. I miss my granddad now lol
I wish I could do this with my Grandma. She’s in a home with dementia and finds going outside too upsetting and stressful. When I visit, she tries really hard to make conversation but I can see it’s hard work for her and she wants me to leave as soon as possible. She forgets I’ve visited almost immediately. I wish so much I could go back to the days when we would have a real conversation and she could show an interest in the world around her.
Maybe let her know that she doesnt need to try and make conversation and that you just want to spend some time with her? Idk, honestly it sounds like a really sad situation, sorry.
Man i wish i had grandparents that loved me
Hits me right in the feelings right now...tomorrow would have been my grandma's birthday, and the anniversary of both her and grandpa's deaths are coming up in the next few weeks. I'd give almost anything to be able to do this for either of them one last time.
I miss my grandpa
How much I wish I could’ve done this before my grandpa passed...
This made me cry my eyes out. I wish more than anything for one more lunch date with my papa. That man was my hero and I miss him more and more every day. My house isn’t a home without him anymore. His chair is empty. I miss him, so so much.
Reminds me of papaw
This is pretty old (I think), and still is one of the best things I've seen on the internet.
Pawpaw is that you? #rightinthefeels
I have very good memories with me going out with my grandpa for lunch and staying over for a few nights. I miss him dearly will be 2 years in August since he passed. My grandpa on my moms side has disease somewhat similar to Parkinson’s. I’d like to take him out for lunch someday
This makes me miss my grandparents... I wasn’t fortunate enough to be able to spend much time with them, but I’ve heard wonderful stories of their time with a much much younger version of me.
My grandfather on my dads side was the last one lost, and he had my grade school picture in his wallet until the very end.
Edit: I should clarify, he passed maybe 6 years ago, but the last time I saw him was 20 years ago. Parents went through a crazy divorce and my grandfather went back to the Philippines, so seeing him was very difficult, I would talk to him on the phone every once and a while, but the last time I saw him in person, I was 10.
The picture he had of me was a picture of the last time he saw me in person, so he kept it because it reminded him of that time. Even though he had seen newer pictures of me, he wanted to keep the memory of our time together as it was.
grampa just wants his borger
My grandma came to visit me the other day and my mom told me that she had said to my mom that she had gotten up early and showered and picked out a nice outfit just to see me and it made me so happy :,)
As someone who has been caring for the elderly population for years now, these things mean the world to them. A client I have right now was visited by her son two weeks ago and she’s still talking about it multiple times per day. It’s one of the only intelligible things she’s capable of saying.
This reminds me of my dad. (He passed at age 88.) He would get up, showered & dressed complete w/shoes & socks!.. then go make his coffee. He never went barefooted. I think this helped him to stay active & live a long life. Our Senior family can be so wonderful & cute. (I never wear shoes at home.) RIP, Daddy!
So wholesome :)
My gramps just passed away two weeks ago, definitely gotta cherish the time you get with them
Fuck I miss my Grandpa.
I miss my grandma.
I lost my grandpa last year. Appreciate your time with them.
Hug your grandparents.
Wow thank you. My grandma always asks me to go out for lunch but me being a growing up immature teenager I sometimes blow her off to hangout with friends or other stuff. Glad I can get this perspective.... and to realize I’m an arse hole
Back when I was 19 I got drunk with my family and promised my grandma I would call her while I was away at college (my family doesn't talk on the phone much). A month later I called her from halfway across the country, and she was so so pleasantly surprised.
Less than a week later she passed away, and when I went to her funeral a half dozen different people from her senior living community came up to tell me how excited she was that I called, she was going around telling everyone about "her granddaughter that called from all the way out in ___" for the last week of her life. It is one of the things in my life that I am most grateful that I have done.
TLDR; call your grandparent
Brb calling my grandma
She looks hot
My grandmother does the same thing whenever my family tells her we are going to visit her. She is honestly the sweetest person ever 💕
If only my grandma wasn't a total bitch....
I miss my grandpa so much too. I'd would've loved to do this with him.
Because when you have kids/grandkids-they are EVERYTHING to you and you miss them soooooooo much it hurts. Really.
This is beautiful. I lost two grandmothers this week, buried one today. All I can say is cherish them as they have cherished you.
There was a choir trip to NY when I was in high school, but I didn’t tell any of my family bc I knew we couldn’t afford it. Parents found out about it. Grandparents paid for it.
They currently live in Hawaii and I’ve been saving up for months to take my sister and I to show them gratitude (:
Love, it literally is the reason for life. Nothing is more important. Don’t miss out
I lost 3 out of my 4 grandparents within a ten month span when I was 24. Still sucks pretty bad. I miss them a lot.
I love him
And then he tried to finger me.
Hope some people that see this and feel guilty actually do something about it and call their close ones
This is wholesome. I sometimes just show up at my grandma's house to see what she's up to. She'll always say, "Good, you're here. I can finally do xyz. Let's roll!" It cracks me up because she's so sassy, but it's her way of saying she treasures our time together.
I don’t want to be a buzz kill, but there’s a part of me that thinks she sat on Twitter or Snapchat the entire time during lunch.
What she REALLY enjoys is posting this wholesome deed on social media for likes :)
My grandpa died last year and this picture really hit me in the feels. We were very close and talked on the phone often. We'd meet for dinner and or woodworking projects regularly and there's a big hole in my heart where he used to be. Miss you Grandpa Bill.

Grandparents are the best! Wish I got to do this with mine.
