My grandparents are my best friends. I had to put them both because they are two halves that make a whole! They met in grammar school and love each other on a level I never knew was possible. They are the nucleus of our family, and they are what draws us all so close together. My grandfather is one of the funniest men I have ever met. All of the old sayings he has always make everyone laugh. He is the greatest storyteller! He is lionhearted and is a very hard working man. He used to be a milk man, and opened the first General Store in Brownsville, VT. It is still standing today. My grandmother is the most loving and warm person to be around. When I am with her, she makes me feel like a good person. She cooks the best food, and gives the best advice anyone could give. She likes to be "cool" and in style! She grew up on a farm, and was the manager of the Ascutney Mountain Ski Resort in Brownsville once upon a time. My grandparents continue to work in their basement, making airplane lights for Whelen Company. They are still active, and within the last decade have white water rafted down the Grand Canyon. They go for walks every day. They have done so much for their community, and would lend a hand to anyone who is in need. I am so proud to have them as my grandparents. They have supported me whole-heartedly throughout my life, attending my soccer, basketball, and softball games in high school, attending all of my academic achievement awards, and continue to support me while I attend nursing school at Colby-Sawyer College. I am their only grandchild, and I am so privileged to have, undoubtedly, such wonderful people woven so deeply into my life. I love them with all of my heart, and without their love, I would not be the person I am today. Recently, my grandmother has been fighting bladder cancer; my grandfather was by her side, holding her hand, every step of the way. She has been cancer free for almost a year now! She is the strongest woman I know. They are so much more than sensational seniors!!!
