My biggest heros are my grandfather and my mother. My grandfather was a strong and active man who lived his life to the fullest. He never said a harsh word to me. This year he passed away and I miss him so very much and think about him so often. I miss his laughter and I miss his loving and gentle ways. I know that I will never forget him and I pray that I will remembered as fondly when I leave this world.
My mom is my hero because she endured such tough times and raised us well in spite of everything. She never gave up on us or gave us away. She always told us that we could be anything we set our minds to. I take right after her too with my sarcasm and wit. I am glad that we are so close and can laugh and cry together.
I hope that I will always emulate some traits from both my grandfather and my mom and be able to pass on what I have learned from them both.
