For some kids, their grandparents won't be people that they meet in person. But they can still know them.
These children may not be spoiled with candy or given a nickname by their grandparents, explains writer Casey Huff. And they won't hear their funny stories from the past - not in person, anyway. But their parents will keep those stories and personalities alive.
In a letter from a person who has children and whose parent died, Huff writes, "I want you to be more than a face that they see in old photo albums or in a frame hanging on the wall" (herviewfromhome). When parents give their children small, vivid details about a deceased grandparent, this is possible. As Huff explains, these children can still know their grandma or grandpa's love.
