June 25th

Today marks the 10th death anniversary of my Grandfather. Has it really been that long?

I don't have much memories of him, but he took care of me from a very young age, with my grandmother, when Mom was working in a factory then.
He always sat in that rocking chair of his, & till this day, Grandma still keeps it well.
I know Grandma misses him alot these years. She's always whining about how Granddad doesn't visit her in her dreams.
He loved watching action movies - he always got agitated watching them. I think the phrase 'Sitting on the edge on your seat' really applied for him.
Still remember, at his funeral - when I saw him lying there, and he looked just the same as he ever were, just paler. Somehow I can't get it out of my head.
There's this particular memory I have etched inside my head of me, Grandma & Grandpa laughing & having fun. I always recall that memory first whenever I think of Grandpa.
It makes me smile, and it makes me sad.
He doted on me. I believe I was his & Grandma's favourite grandchild. I still do.

Grandpa, how are you up there? I hope you're having fun.
Don't worry, I'll use all the love you've doted on me on Grandma. I'm not gonna let her be lonely. Love you, Grandpa.
