This man is my life. My grandfather was such a large part of my life. He was my father figure growing up and taught me everything there is to know about life.
Last spring he was diagnosed with Dementia. Since then my family has struggled with accepting it. I can see in his eyes how much he has changed, not only mentally but physically. This is the first time i have ever seen him weak.
My grandma always tells me how excited he gets when i visit and how much his personality changes when I’m around.
A couple weeks ago was the first time he didn’t recognize me. It took him close to a half hour to finally believe me that i was who i said i was. This was so hard for me to handle.
No matter what i will always keep him around. He inspired me to do things outside of the box and live my life how i want to. I love my grandpa so much.
