#Grand parents are the real treasures of our lives. And when they go...they make sure they leave behind a part of themselves, in you.

#I feel so blessed to have spent so many years, growing up, with them. The memories will always be the most special treasures...forever.

#And for all the lucky ones out there who still have their nana-nanis, dada-dadis, give them your time!
