I have never known two people more in love than my grandparents. Their love for each other inspires me and makes me feel so blessed to be a member of this family. My grandfather is the most handsome, sweet, and intelligent man I have ever met and loves my grandmother to her bones. She on the other hand is more of a firecracker with a unique sense of humor as well as her personality. She tells me constantly how lucky she is to have a 'poppy' that loves and takes care of her the way my papa does. I now have in my possession a collection of photographs from when my grandparents first met and got engaged. I love these photos. I took them with me to college, I made copies for my bedroom at home, and I will always hold them dear to my heart. Although my grandmother suffers from dementia the one thing that never will be erased from her memory is how her and my papa met and the life they made together. It amazes me and gives me hope for true love in this world.
