Jane from Texas

My name is Jane and I want to share my story about my grandpa. Hes a loving, sweet, hard working, tough man. He is 69 years old but you can't even tell. He's so full of life. We love his so much. I'm helping my mother take care of him. I'm currently in college so right after I get out I gladly go home to watch him. We wake up early in the morning and have coffee together. When it's time for me to go to school he always gives me a goodbye kiss. I can't even begin to imagine life without him. Watching him is the least that I can do for all the things that he has ever done for us. I help him take his medication. He always remember to take them but I'm just there to remind him just in case he forgets. He has yet to do that.
