There's no doubting the love between a child and their parents. However, there's something heartwarming about the special bond children share with their elders, especially grandparents.

The more we grow up, the more we yearn to return to our childhood. Perhaps that's why grandparents can come down to their grandkids' level, forging a profound connection that transcends everything.

A SPECIAL MEMORY

The story we're sharing today is about a fantastic grandma-grandchild duo that will melt your hearts. Amy Buchan Kavelaras from Westerville, Ohio, shared a phenomenal relationship with her grandmother, Ruth.

One day, Kavelaras went to her grandma's place to help her move into an assisted living facility. Her mother accompanied her, and together, they started helping Ruth pack up.

Kavelaras ran to her grandmother and convinced her to try the "special thing." When Ruth saw it was her wedding dress from 63 years ago, she couldn't help being emotional.
