My grandparents were married for almost 60 years. At the time, my granddad was in his late 70s and due to his unhealthy diet (the man LOVED his ice cream and cake and bacon) as well as his love for cigars, he got a bit sick and was stuck in bed for a few weeks.
Since he was an anesthesiologist and my grandmother was also a trained nurse, they allowed him to stay at home
So I went up to talk to him about stuff, when my grandmother came in with his soup. Then just randomly, maybe sensing that he may not have much time left, he just spilled his heart out to her;
Granddad : Pam, you’ve always been there for me. You raised 5 beautiful children and 8 amazing grandchildren. I know I wasn’t the easiest person to get along with, and I’m sorry for the hell I put you through. That being said, can I ask one more favor from you?
Grandma : Of course dear. What is it?
Granddad : When I die, I want you to live a full life. But when your time comes…will you marry me one more time in heaven?
Me : (AAAAAWWWWWWWWWW)
Grandma : Oh Don…that’s so sweet of you, but you and I both know you’re going to hell.
(Granddad and Grandma both laugh)
It was very “their” sort of humor, and while I didn’t understand or appreciate it at the time, I’m a grown man now and it brings a smile to my face whenever I think back on that.
