My grandpa passed over 10 years ago. I remember it quite well because I was in university at the time.
My grandparents lived in Port Hope, Ontario. Just outside of Toronto.
One time my Mom came back from a visit with them and she brought me a few metal beer mugs that were my Grandpa’s. He wanted me to have them. She said I should call him and thank him. It had been awhile since we had chatted.
I didn’t call him. I’m not sure why.
A few weeks later he passed away.
One of my bigger regrets in life and I’m sharing here for anyone who might need a reminder to call someone they care about.
