Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop

Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop

My grandparents have always been my idols. The way that they loved one another and cared for one another. My mom-mom passed away a few years ago and my pop-pop misses her dearly. They were the sweet Ukrainian couple that fell in love. Religion is important to them and they raised all five of their children as Byzantine-Catholic and that has carried on down to me. They both grew up during the time of the great depression so they both have been through a lot growing up, but when they met, they never let anything stop them. They were always working hard to provide for their family and would do anything for one another. I hope my marriage is half as strong as theirs was. I am so happy I was brought up witnessing their love. Now, I can never say I don’t know what love is because they were it.
