Love Of My Life. by orangetopatos Love Of My Life. by orangetopatos
I finally give you all of my heart. You can see why i love this man so much.
He is my grandfather. He is dying. But ill always love him.
Some of you who watch me and read my journals will know the insanity i have been going through with taking care of him.
this is the man ive been talking about.

the sweetest, most handsome man ive ever met.
jeez, im crying as i write this but, i dont care. he knows how much i love him. now im showing you.

he used to weigh 177...he weighs about 95lbs...
not good. but there is nothing i can do, if i could, i most definately would.

i dont care if he wheels himself around in circles...tells me about how he got arrested yesterday(not possible--hes 87 and in a nursing home) or how he makes these awful faces when we try and make him eat.
i still love him.

A wonderful photograph and a very sad loss. Reminds me very much of my own grandfather who passed away some years ago but is still thought about daily. If you have no objection I'd love to render this as a pencil/charcoal portrait.
