this moment ~ happiness with grandpa

..

He told the story of how his mom (my Grandma Anne) taught him to play checkers, more than 50 years ago. He gave Chessa all kinds of pointers, they must have played at least 5 games in a row.

Days were filled with lots of game playing, some nice walks, and lots of story time. Lots and lots of story time. After the first nights bedtime story Chloe says to Jason and I, "I just love how grandpa reads a story!" With a happy sigh.

And then after 3 days we had to say goodbye, and I don't think anything at all ever hurts so much...

Saying "goodbye" is never easy is it? I don't think it gets easier the more you have done it.
Happy memories do help.
