MY DEAR GRANDPA!!
A lot of people are very important and special in my life. One of them is my grandpa. I was very small when it was my summer vacation and I went with him on vacation at his place. It was after that and he became my best friend, advisor and closest colleague. At first time when I saw him I was very small. I remembered I was looking at him as if he was stranger. Big white moustache all dressed up and white curly hairs. I was thinking he is policeman and he is here to take my mom in jail. And than I went ran to my mom and told her that one policeman is here. Than looking at him my told me that he is her father and my grandpa. Than he took out candy from his pocket and gave it to me. Than I loose that impression of him as a stranger from my mind. Than I went to his place and had lots of fun with him. He took me out everyday. He teach me how to ride bicycle, how to not fight with friends, how to wear shoes and lots of other things. He used to carry me on his shoulders all the time and I was enjoying thinking of being taller than him. I use to steal his glasses and make him find everywhere. But he never got mad at me. I can tell he loved me very much.
By the time I was growing I was writing him and spending a lot of time with him. When I was small I was telling everyone that my grandpa is my best friend they were amazed and felt laughing. But I was just telling truth. Than chances occurred and he had to move to place where I was living. I was in high school that time. It was than when I spend a lot of time with him. We went to movie to gather, we always went shopping to gather and went on vacation to gather. He was teaching me ethics of life in various points. According to him life is gift of god and one should enjoy each and every part of it. He taught me how to think positive and be courageous. His teachings always helped me when I feel trapped or lonely. I shared my good and bad moments with him many times and he had always found me way out of it.
It was hard for him and me to leave each other when I moved to US. But he made my mind strong and told me you will be fine and hope you get success in life. But something happened in May 2000. I got a call from India from my cousin that our beloved grandpa has walked his way to heaven. It was most shocking moment of my life. The man who was my great source of inspiration, my best friend and my dearest grandpa can t leave me like this. Tears began to feel off my eyes. The most thing that hurt me is I didn t get the chance to see him last time. But it s a fact that everyone has to leave this place one day. My love for him has been growing after his death. Now I can t see him but I have his picture, which is great inspiration for me. I can never forget the best moments of my life, which I spent with him. I can never forget the teachings from him, which are big pillars of my life. I can never forget the innocent and unselfish friendship we had. I can never forget the face of old man. As our instructor said that death ends life but it does not end relationship, it is true and exact sentence in my case. He is dead but he is alive in my heart. The light of his love is still lighting in my heart. Dear grandpa I miss you a lot!!!
