An 87 Year Age Gap

Aaron is one lucky little boy to be able to enjoy time with his great grandparents. Here he is with his great grandfather.





There may be an 87 year age gap between them but they still manage to have evening walks together. One of them is getting hard of hearing and the other still has problems pronouncing some of his words but that doesn't stop the chats they have.

It is the hope for moments like these that I often end up extending my stay in Ipoh for.

Both of my grandfathers and all four of my great-grandfathers died before I was born. My father is now 87, and I'm glad my grandchildren have had the opportunity to get to know him while he's still around...sadly, they never really got to know my mother, who passed away before they were old enough to really know her. Aaron is a lucky fellow, and his great-grandfather is a lucky man as well. There's really nothing more important than the love of a good family.

That is so very special. Great-grandfather's are such a job. I was lucky enough as a child to know 2 of my great grandfathers and all 4 of my great grandmothers.
