Until November 11, 2011, I had all 4 of my grandparents living. Both sets had been married for over 65 years and all provided me with healthy achieving role models.
On November 11, I lost my Abuelito. My Mother’s father passed away with his family by his bed side. He was a Mexican-American family doctor who in fact, delivered my Mother. Always one to entertain, he was a very special grandfather who made everyone laugh.
On May 16, I lost my Grandpa McCabe. His memorial service was filled with people who looked up to him for being an incredible intelligent, devoted and Christian man. He was a WWII vet who was so dedicated to his family.
These men were so special. I am so blessed to have them in my life. I know they are both in a better place but I hope they know how much we miss them.
