‼️A very important request‼️
This is the first Christmas my Grandpa will spend without my beautiful Grandma. They spent 66 Christmas’ married (this year would have been 67.) As my Grandpa calls me, it’s a very one sided conversation on his end as his ear drum is busted and he can’t hear me whatsoever. And others who still connect with him say the same. Grandpa has mentioned he didn’t think he would decorate and that he was a bit sad and lonely. As I live with my family NC and he lives in Ohio, I can’t make it home for holidays.
I was wondering if anyone connected to our family and friends could stop by sometime before Christmas to see Grandpa, and maybe gift him a history based book (we just sent him Band of Brothers and he’s an Airforce Veteran!) or a meal or a Christmas card, to let him know he’s not alone (but don’t feel obligated to gift anything because your company is always enough in his eyes!) Even if someone just stops in to say a simple hello and give him 5mins of your time, he’ll usually give you a hug, handshake and a drink or meal (he’s very giving in nature.) Message me if you’re interested and I’ll send you his address, and make sure to send a pic so I can put it in a memory book to send him later! Thank you all and I hope you have the warmest of holidays!
