I feel really lucky to have married into a family with so many lovely people. And Grandpa (and Grandma) Harvey are two of the sweetest, kindest people I’ve known. Since I first met Grandpa 14 years ago, he’s felt just like a grandpa I’ve always had.
Here’s a cute couple of pictures of Sylvia and Grandpa playing together when she was 2.
Grandma Harvey passed away in May 2010 (you can read her funeral tribute here), and since that time, Grandpa’s had a tough road. Losing his wife of 70 years wasn’t comprehensible to him. I think he’s probably glad to be at the end of his life’s journey.
And here’s an image of Grandpa from our last visit with him this May. Sweet Grandpa, we sure will miss you. With both you and my Grandpa Babler gone, who’s going to flirt and ask me to be his girlfriend? I’ll miss holding your hand.
