when I was 6 my great-granddad died of Alzheimer's. he was an amazing man. I miss him dearly even though it has been nine years, I guess because I was so young when he died I feel I never got to say a proper goodbye. I never really cried about it due to my age but a coupe of months ago my friend saw her gran whilst on the school bus, she obviously got off the bus and walked her gran home and I guess it just hit home that I would never see him or hug or even get to tell him that I love him so much and that he has effected my life so much in just the space of 6 years. He was such a big part of my life because he was the only elderly person in my family.

Great grand Dad

it is great that you can remember your great grand dad. My daughter was about 7 when her grand-father died. she spent a lot of time taking care of him and it means a lot when you can look back and reflect on those memories.
