Till death do us part illustrated

When my grandfather died last spring I saw the most beautiful thing; I saw my grandmother help him die. She snuggled next to him in bed, and talked to him and stroked his face and held his hand. I have seen till death do us part up close. It is beautiful and absolutely worth devoting my life to.
