Jake’s Moving and Storage: The Story of My Grandparents
My grandad chose the Ellis Island route during his first ever journey to this marvelous country. When he was a child, all he had ever known were strict parents. The pictures painted a thousand words, and you could see his life through them. When you viewed the photographs, you would think that smiling was beyond the capabilities of this young man. He was a good person nonetheless, despite his upbringing.
Sam was then discharged from the Navy after falling ill to pneumonia. It truly was a lot worse than people would have expected because the guy had a portion of his lung removed. It worked well enough for him because he was able to adjust to his new life not long after it happened. The challenges of growing old didn’t bother this individual as he was really determined to make a life for himself.
My grandma’s intelligence, charm, and beauty brought grandad to his knees in more ways than one. All it took was him looking at her to know she was the one. He told his close friend that he was going to be marrying the girl.
The story touched us in so many ways. On the foot of our grandad’s bed was where were told of this amazing story. We knew that his pneumonia was in full force and that it was going to be much worse this time around.
Such is the way of the world and sometimes you simply have to accept it. We knew in our hearts that my grandfather was heading to a happier place – a place without pain and suffering.
Almost a decade before – nine years to be exact – my grandmother had passed. The place where they used to live, High Point Furniture Market, had become our home. Our home was simply rented out while we were off living our lives. My mom’s old room was where I dressed up for prom night. Months later, my mother suffered a heart attack. To our utter sadness, we buried her on Mother’s Day.
You would find no one more devout to the Catholic church than my grandfather. When he and my grandmother married, they decided to become Methodists. Me and my babies have, to this day, continued the family heritage.
My grandparents then started searching for a place to live. Because this was over many years ago, moving companies such as Jake’s Moving & Storage didn’t exist yet. Logistical solutions were made by none other than my grandparents themselves. You need to know who you are and who you partner is and moving is one way for you to know that. After much searching, they finally settled in my grandmother’s home.
