50th anniversary of my grandmother’s death
Fifty years ago, my grandmother passed away at the age of 60.
My parents were very happy that they were able to hold the memorial service for the 50th anniversary of her death together.
And what made me most happy was that, although several of my aunts and uncles had passed away, my aunts and uncles who are around 80 and still in good health also participated.
They all ate and talked a lot.
This must be the secret of their good health.
After the memorial service, we headed to a French restaurant.
After my father’s speech, we each gave a brief update on what was going on in our lives. We enjoyed the food while listening to his speech.
Part of the meal, the main dish was a foie gras steak shipped directly from France,
and one of the desserts was a cheese platter!
I wondered for a moment, “Will everyone be able to eat it? “But I was wrong to doubt them!
No one left any food behind.
We moved on to the next dessert, saying, “That cheese was so delicious…”
The last photo was taken to commemorate the event.
I envied my parents and aunts and uncles for being able to age so well.
It was a day that made me think once again that I must do my best to follow in their footsteps.
