I've never quite understood what the course of time would entail. Two people, two lives, apart yet always a part of one another.

Grandpa and Grandma got married in March 1962. They have both forgotten the exact date of their wedding. In 1971, after the birth of their third child, things took a turn. Habits and differences started to get in the way. But for the sake of family, they were never officially separated. Soon enough, when their children had their own families, they felt that they could not live together any longer.

This is my attempt in restoring and safeguarding whatever may remain in a relationship that has long faded away.
