by Someone who wish they could go back
My cousins grandfather died recently. He was struggling and had a stroke. He needed help at all times and was soon in a wheelchair. He would visit mainly on holidays, birthdays, and graduations. We were not close and I didn't talk to him much. I'm only a 15 year old so at the time if rather play ball with my cousins. When I went to his funeral I noticed all of his military badges and I learned be was a caring father. The speeches by the sons were very emotional and made me realize something. Life after this won't be the same. I'm going to miss him although I didn't talk to him much. It will be one less familiar face that is at thanksgiving. Looking back I wish I could go back 6 years and become close with him and ask him to tell me stories of his life. I'm gonna miss him so much and I wish more than anything for him to be here today.
