“I was fortunate to witness something amazing in the final few months of my grandma’s life.
That was the kind of unwavering affection my grandparents shared.
Grandma did EVERYTHING, and my grandfather couldn’t have survived without her. We used to tease him.
But this past year, the tables turned.
Through this, I’ve come to understand that Romeo and Juliet isn’t the most romantic love story.
But grandma and grandpa were the ones who grew old together.
Grandpa has been by grandma’s side during the most difficult period of her life.
As she underwent six rounds of chemotherapy, he had to learn how to cook, clean, and do laundry for her.
Grandpa is holding her hand.
Being present at all medical appointments.
He didn’t want her to be left alone, even for a little while, so he wouldn’t leave the house unless someone else took his place.
The medical staff is amazed by his dedication and remarks on how everyone enjoyed seeing them together, especially those waiting in the waiting rooms.
While she was in the hospital and while she was in hospice, he was at her side every single day.
He’s contacting me and asking me to assist him with decorating the house and making signs since he believes she will be returning soon.
He is the one who is constantly holding her hand, stroking her cheek, and kissing her forehead.
Every time he sensed that she might be uncomfortable, he would start crying because he couldn’t bear to think that she was hurt.
She is more gorgeous than ever. She looks lovely, doesn’t she? said he.
After several strokes, her body became weak and weakened.
Every day he continued to compliment her on how beautiful she was.
They experienced the kind of enduring love to which we all aspire.
The couple would have celebrated 60 years of marriage next month, but it still wouldn’t have been enough.
His final words to her were, “Oh you’re so precious, goodnight my honey.”
A powerful reminder to make wise decisions comes from witnessing the way he loved her.
Choose a person who will remain your closest confidant for 60 years.
Who will continue to hold your hand in both good and bad circumstances, but most significantly in the latter.
Someone who isn’t ashamed or hesitant to declare their affection.
Who, in front of a crowded group, loudly says, “She’s the most beautiful thing, and I love her so much.”
Such is love.
They were in their 20s when they first met at a cycling club in England, and I believe it is safe to say that they participated in the most significant race together.
They pedalled furiously and battled their way up every hill that life threw at them.
They kept trying to be one other’s teammates and exchanged encouraging each other when one of them felt worn out or discouraged.
The greatest race of all was a life together filled with love, which they won.
And what a gift it has been to see this heartwarming romance and be able to record one of their final, priceless moments together.
