True love gives all.









                                    True love gives all.                                                                       (A old memory)

Sixty five years together. He still stood by my grandmother with his hand in hers.

He shopped daily at the Farmer Jacks and bought her treats she desired.


When he couldn’t drive anymore. He failed his driver test. This broke his heart but like the depressions, Wars and  bad times he kept his positive attitude.

He raised me and my sister without one complains. Us kids always had a place to come and rest.

He would give solid advice and accepted  mistake with  kind words of it would be alright. Can I help you?

I still can hear my Grandfather voice telling me. “Think before you speak. Nothing good to say. Say nothing.”

He taught me true love give all. I still can see my Grandfather all dressed up with my Grandmother next to him.

They gave to me and the family till their last breath.

When I came back from Iraq in 1991. He took the whole family out.

He was so happy I was alive and well.

He loved and cared for  me and today I feel his spirit and wisdom in my spirit. I hear his voice when I speak.

True love gives all.
