Grandpa's New Girlfriend

I met my grandpa's girlfriend today that he has had for 2 years. Long story short, my grandma died, 3 months later my grandpa was dating this nice lady from Ohio (my grandpa lives in New York). They are cute together. Both of their spouses have passed away and when they talk about their kids or their old memories w/ their deceased spouse they still use the word we or us and you just know they are referring to their spouse. They do seem to enjoy each other's company but I can't even think of the fact that they are sleeping in the same room!! I guess that doesn't go away even if your 84 ;)

I guess people back then just lived to have kids cause Alice (the girlfriend) has 9 children!!! 3 boys and 6 girls!!! ooh my.. and 26 grandkids and 36 great grand kids!!! My grandpa isn't to far away 8 kids, 15 grandkids, and 1 great grand child (Go Morgan! :).

Thinking of those numbers made me really think about leaving behind a legacy and what kinda've legacy will our family leave behind. What can we pass down to our children, grandkids, and great grand kids.

isn't it wierd to think that after one or the other of you pass away you could possibly remarry? that is just a strange thought. also yeah, kids and the numbers definetley different back then and i think so were the gas prices :)
