Though They Aren't With Us Anymore, They Won't Be Forgotten
For some kids, their grandparents won't be people that they meet in person. But they can still know them.
These children may not be spoiled with candy or given a nickname by their grandparents, explains writer Casey Huff. And they won't hear their funny stories from the past - not in person, anyway. But their parents will keep those stories and personalities alive.
In a letter from a person who has children and whose parent died, Huff writes, "I want you to be more than a face that they see in old photo albums or in a frame hanging on the wall" (herviewfromhome). When parents give their children small, vivid details about a deceased grandparent, this is possible. As Huff explains, these children can still know their grandma or grandpa's love.
