I don’t care how long I live, but I desperately want to see my wonderful grandson through college, which will require another decade. Very unlikely given my family history.
My own favorite grandfather died the summer before my senior year of high school. It was hard, as I felt very close to him. He and I were buddies, fishing and enjoying time working together on his farm when I could visit. I loved him so much.
My first and foremost desire is to see my own grandson graduate from high school. We have a late start, and he won't graduate for probably 12 years (he's entering kindergarten this fall). Maybe I'll be there, maybe not, but we're already working on the "buddies" part!
