68/365: Grandpa Bill

He had planned to outlive grandma because she was frail and had MS. For several years he secretly diverted her pension cheques to his wife in the States, which wasn't so much of a problem because it was kind of like paying for assisted living, only a little less above the table.

In fact, it wasn't until he died that everyone really started to realize how incapable grandma was of living alone.

He was the most reliable source of comic books I had, and in most ways, the most grandfatherly of my grandfathers.
