A visit with my Mom’s Dad

My parents came into town for a visit… and they didn’t even stay with us! No, instead they stayed w/ my Mom’s Dad… my Gramps, and his wife Maryann.

My Dad helped w/ odds and ends around the house (yes, he’s making a ‘stinky face’ because he was working on his vacation) … and Mom did some cooking and grocery shopping and helping out as well during the week they were here. On this night,Lee and I went down to visit for an evening of chatting and catching up… and we had some dessert together. Really nice visit.
As our family learns about Alzheimers we spend as much of this time as possible with Gramps… talking through the stories he still remembers and reminding him of our names every now and then but most importantly telling him we love him.
