doug's gramps passed away yesterday
but what i wanted to talk about was our New Years Eve with him
i saw him last Christmas Eve
& the boys had not seen for awhile
so we came home early from the lake
to be with him,
and mom & pop
and that is what we did
it was so nice
we sat around his bed
ordered pizza & pop
played BigBand music & partied together :)
great gramps' feet bopped in bed perfectly in time to the music
he couldn't talk so he squeezed the boys hands
so hard it hurt
Doug joked that gramps was a tough old guy
he just smiled, winked & continued squeezing them
it was so nice
i know i said that already but it really was
we did not go back with the boys after that nite
we wanted them to have that last party as their memory
i took this on nick's ipod
it makes me smile
thank you great gramps for all the memories
we will never forget
