the most beautiful thing.

Grammy died last night. she loved her family very much, so I'm happy that most of us have been around the last few days and weeks. in her final days she slept, mostly, but she would open her eyes to look at us when we spoke to her. she smiled a few times and said 'I love you.'

and she saved a special smile for Grandad. they have been married almost 60 years. when she'd open her eyes and see him there, her whole face would relax. he stroked her hair and when he told her to 'just rest now, dear', his voice was peaceful and loving. it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
