Stories of Grandpa

I will never ever forget this moment with my Grandpa.

Grandpa never really said "I love you" when we were growing up.
It never bothered me in the slightest.
I ALWAYS knew he loved me.
He didn't have to say it.

But on this day, it was different.
After my wedding ceremony, Grandpa came over and hugged me.
I said I love you to him.
He said, "Back at you."
He hugged me so hard and long.
And he cried.
I said I love you again.
And he said, "back at you" again.
Then, I said I love you a third time.
This time, he actually said, "I love you."

It was possibly the sweetest moment of my life.
