True Love Remembered

As a girl, I was raised by my dear, wonderful Grandmother who now suffers from Alzheimer's.  She was an example of so much good and I spent my life wanting to be like her and to make her proud.  It is hard sometimes to see her unable to recall the past.  Some days she knows who we are, but more often than not she struggles.  This little story touched my heart and reminded me of my also wonderful and inspiring grandfather.  
I grew up knowing how much he loved her but it was watching them together in their final years together when I truly grasped the depth of his love for her.  May we all have examples of true love in our lives.  Even when she doesn't remember all she taught and meant to me, the important thing is that I will.  

Enjoy this lovely story
