... very very much! He was such a very good man, though a man of few words. He loves to spoil her grandkids in every way he can. It was so hard to see him suffer from Alzheimers.:( I still can't believe he's been gone for more than 11 years.
My Maternal Grandparents... both terribly missed!
If only my maternal grandpa and uncle (my Apu's junior) are alive today, they'll be 83 & 50 respectively. Today is their birthday, and share the same name as well. My uncle died of cancer on May 16, 1992 at the age of 33, while my Apu died on April 21, 1998. Happy birthday to 2 good men!
grandfather, grandmother = lolo, lola = apu
