Ashley realized, with each new visit, that these various people made up the veins of his grandparents’ heart. He learned more about Grandma and Grandpa Grant than what his Uncle Jerry could provide.

‘You may have taken a few more years to get here, but here you are and our door is always open,’ she told him, embracing him with both her arms and her words.
