I came home from my (two years late) A-level graduation ceremony and proudly showed him my medal.
He was delighted, and immediately fished out some cash from under his pillow (where he generally kept it) as a token of his love and appreciation.
Although he wasn’t well, when I told him I wanted to take a picture with him to commemorate the day, he insisted on getting up and sitting with me for it.
It’s only been 5 years. It’s already been 5 years.
Miss you, grand father.
