True love at its finest.
This is my grandmother holding my grandfather's hand just an hour before he passed away last night. After 60 plus years of marriage, they never left each other's side. Witnessing their very last moments together was the most heartbreaking, yet beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life. She held his hand until the very end and was the first to feel him leaving us.
My grandfather was the foundation of my family and impacted the lives of each of his grandkids in such an incredible way. He taught us all what being a strong, yet loving & compassionate leader looked like. He took charge when it came to helping those in need around him, and always let us know how much he loved us when we were with him. These are traits I see reflected in my father, and hopefully are traits I can one day embody, then pass on to my children.
I really can't believe he's gone, but I thank God for allowing him to stay in my life long enough for me to truly appreciate how blessed and honoured I am to be his grandson.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un
Love you forever Papa Jaan ❤️
