Throughout my childhood, grandpa Bob would ask me to do favors for him and in return he always said he would dance at my wedding. This has been something that I have always cherished and although it is not a moment I will be able to share with him, I am happy to have this memory and am thankful for all of the times I was able to see the smile on his face when he would share the comment with me. I am comforted by the photos that we are able to look back on especially those of him dancing with grandma Karen at their 50th wedding anniversary (posted below). I am so very fortunate to have shared the first 21 years of my life with role models as wonderful and caring as my grandparents.
