Legacy of Love

Back in the 90's Vince Gill had a song called "Look at Us." My Papaw used to always say that it must've been written for him and my Mamaw. I am sad that we can't look at them physically anymore as an example of love, but we still look TO them for that example.

Ever year on their anniversary, he would give her a card and instead of saying how many years they'd been married, he would count the days. When he died, they had been married 22, 717 days. After 630 days of separation, they are reunited again, never to part.

Mamaw and Papaw, we all miss you very much, and selfishly want you here, but we know that you are both where you have always wanted to be... Continue to watch over us and we will see you again someday.

Vince Gill "Look At Us"

Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all that we've been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other

If you want to see
How true love should be
then just look at us

Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin' in forever

If you want to see
How true love should be
then just look at us

In a hundred years from now
I know without a doubt
They'll all look back and wonder how
We made it all work out

Chances are
We'll go down in history
When they want to see
How true love should be
They'll just look at us

Oh, that is so sweet. They must have been wonderful grandparents to produce a girl like you! It's amazing what kind of legacies people leave behind without every really trying, isn't it? I'll pray for your family and your grandparents, but it looks like you have plenty of love to go around!
