Photo Essay of Vernon

As a continuation of my grandfather’s photo essay, here are just a few more from the holidays.

My husband and I visited Grandpa to give him a small gift – a wedding photo of us.

He took his time and opened it very carefully.

He studied it …

And he finally gave us a little smile.

Although his Alzheimer’s prevents him from talking much, it’s obvious that things like this brighten his day. He didn’t want to let go of the photo when we left, so we let him keep a hold of it instead of hanging it on the wall.
