A Story About Sacrifice: Jake’s Moving and Storage
As he journeyed to this country, my grandfather could not help but choose the Ellis Island route. His parents were strict and he was subjected to proper discipline each and every day. You could see it all in the pictures. This young man you would think, especially when you viewed the photographs, found it impossible to smile or display acts of happiness. He was a good person nonetheless, despite his upbringing.
Sam fell ill from pneumonia and was then discharged from the Navy because of it. It truly was a lot worse than people would have expected because the guy had a portion of his lung removed. The guy, despite having gone through such horrors, was able to adjust to life in the best possible way. The challenges of getting old were definitely taking its toll but he remained determined to make a life for himself.
My grandma’s intelligence, charm, and beauty brought grandad to his knees in more ways than one. He looked at her from the other side of the room and just knew she was the one. He told his close friend that he was going to be marrying the girl.
This is truly an amazing story that touched our hearts in more ways than one. This wonderful story was told to us as we were gathered in the foot of our grandad’s bed. His pneumonia was in full force yet again and this time we knew it would be so much worse.
We were sad, yes, but such is the way of the world which we’ve come to accept. My grandfather was strong and he would soon be journeying to a happier place – one that was free from pain and suffering.
Almost a decade before – nine years to be exact – my grandmother had passed. The place where they used to live, High Point Furniture Market, had become our home. We simply had ours rented out. My mother’s old bedroom was where I prepared for prom night. A couple of months later she suffered a heart attack. When Mother’s Day came, we buried her body.
You would find no one more devout to the Catholic church than my grandfather. When he and my grandmother married, they decided to become Methodists. The family heritage which they began exists today in me and my babies.
My grandparents then started searching for a place to live. You couldn’t expect companies such as Jake’s Moving & Storage to exist this long ago, right? Matters regarding logistics were made using the extent of knowledge my grandparents had. You need to know who you are and who you partner is and moving is one way for you to know that. My grandma’s home was then chosen as the place where they would soon grow their family.
