Dear Gramps;
On the mornings I would wake up in your ever quiet house; I recall the smile which stretched across your face as I crept down the stairs with piano in my mind. You always ensured there were new materials to practice, and regardless of the time between visits, you were always patient when listening to my off key fingers combined with out of tune voice. Your laugh was so boisterous and such a relief to my musical inability! As an adult I have come to hear that your laughter is a trait which you have gifted through biology. We laugh deeply in our family and wish that in your later years we could have laughed more often together. It is your laugh that assured me that I truly was welcome in your life and in your mind, if my presence was not always a constant.
As life's journey floated me here and there, your ear was always ready to hear the stories of my adventures, but still nothing compared to your laugh when hearing that I was back in town. When I finally came home with a family of my own, your smile and laugh welcomed us strong. To see you in these last years, to see you with my children, to hear the stories of my heritage, to see the photos old and new, thank you for sharing. In my years I can remember that for ever story or question I had, your had 10 stories and answers to share, some random, some en pointe. I cannot help but wish that our last visit was not delayed; I know you had more photos to explain and documents to share. We loved your visits to the beach house and visits to the farm. We will never forget your visit to the school, Garnet Foster's school! and the pride which stretched across your face to see that your blood, your little grand-daughter was making a positive impression in a community close to your past. We are proud of you for selling your car so they could not take away your licence, you crafty bugger ;)
Thank you for emailing to stay in touch. Thank you for sending us jokes which could lighten a moment ... or create an abstract train of thought. Thank you for using a cell phone so we could text at random. Thank you for knowing that you were old and going to die, but ... just for the record... you lived a year longer than you expected, so let me be the first to remind you that you were wrong! In knowing that you were old, you made an extra effort to impress the youngest generation of our family; they love you, they love your visits, we love you Gramps. In life we had wished your were closer, in death we know you are with us eternally.
Thank you for Caring. We love you, Gramps.
