But I like to believe that these changes are meant to help you find your strength, so that you can emerge much stronger and wiser from the experience than ever before.
He and my grandmother were an inspiration to me, and I will always remember how Grandpa’s compassion, strength and will in life were unparalleled.
He constantly reminded me that the best things in life are the people you love, the places you’ve been and the memories you’ve made along the way, and I hope to take that lesson with me and pass it down to the family that Ryan and I will create some day.
I’m sharing these photos that I took during my time spent back home with my grandfather, because the Arizona desert reminds me of his strength and resilience, and of his love for exploring nature.
I won’t say “goodbye” to you, Grandpa, but rather, “I’ll miss you until I can see you again.” I love you always.
