He and my grandma were inseparable. They were married for over 60 years, and they would still hold hands even when just walking through the house together. In the later years, he became homebound, but every time we took my grandma out to eat, she would make sure to bring some home for him. When we took our grandma grocery shopping, she would wander over to the freezer section to pick up a box of ice cream bars, saying, "These are his favorite." Coming to a new country, they left all their friends behind but they always had each other. Our grandma is childlike and opinionated, prone to tantrums and always in the middle of everybody else's business. Our grandpa was peaceful and serene, spending long hours meditating in his room, before coming downstairs to tell us he figured out an elegant mathematical proof to some theorem (he was a brilliant scholar and seismologist back in the day). They balanced each other out like yin and yang.
This is the first time our family has lost someone in America, and we had no idea how expensive it is to be buried in this country. We are not even having a funeral, but just for the cremation/burial, the cost incurred is extraordinary. My parents have not had any steady income for years now, and we don't want our mom and grandma to have to worry so much about finances in addition to their grief.
My sister and I have set up this page to try and alleviate a portion of the financial burden on our family. Any little bit helps. If you can't make a monetary donation, please keep our family and especially our grandma in your thoughts and prayers. It is very much appreciated.
