Us against the world.
by Shayna Shepard
Today is August 10,2009.
My granddaddy died last night at 9 o clock.
When I was born I was a premature. My mommy and daddy thought I wasn't gonna make it.
Granddaddy came to see me one time, took a long look at me and said she's gonna make it, she'll be alright. He was right.
I did make it. I still and will always love him.
My title is "Us against the world" because it's something Grandaddy used to say to my Nana and Daddy before any of us were born. Us being my four brothers and I.
I only hope that he's safe and happy. My granddaddy survived a two heart attacks, one time his heart stopped, plus a stroke, and Hospice. He survived it all.
I'm very proud of him.
