OK, I'm a Gramma, but younger and healthy, but I have to admit that I cried when I read the story. How neat is that? Such a little thing, and yet so filled with meaning and...well. love.

Thanks for posting the story. It made my day!

Thanks for posting the story... The story reminds me of my mother. She passed away back in 2003 of cancer.
Here is a picture of June Pearce (age 84) riding on the back of Ron Borowski's motorcycle in Okeechobee, Florida. My hats off to Ron! He gave up whatever is going on in his own life to make someone else’s a little better. Way to go Ron!
