My grandmother's memory is fading and while she doesn't always remember the rest of us. She always remembers my Grandfather -- the man who won her heart in a whirlwind romance sixty years ago. And he still looks at her fondly and is amazing devotion to keeping her safe and happy is things Hollywood can't even touch!
I am blessed to be close to my grandparents and I hold they out as our ideal. Will and I had a short, whirlwind romance and were married right around their ages. We have two kids, roughly the same age difference as my dad and aunt. We have a lot in common with that couple sixty years ago. I can only pray that they have something in common with a couple 55 years from now!
