INSPIRED BY HER GRANDPARENTS' RELATIONSHIP

Growing up, Elizabeth keenly observed the relationship between her grandparents and was deeply moved by their never-ending love and affection for each other. The TikToker noted how her grandpa made her grandma feel like the only woman in the world.

A LIFE-ALTERING TRAGEDY

Sadly, everything came crashing down when her grandmother died — a few years ago as of 2022 — from Alzheimer's. Elizabeth shared a video on her social media, and its caption read, "Why do you believe in an unbreakable love that lasts a lifetime?" Further, she wrote:

"Because my 92 year old grandpa showed me through example while my grandma was alive and slowly died through Alzheimer's. He reminds me that the love I want does exist and I won't have to beg for it."

The Illinois resident explained that she didn't like it when someone told her that her expectations were too high or she was condescending. Seeing her grandparents' love and devotion for each other had reportedly led her to want the same in life.

Losing the love of his life changed Elizabeth's grandpa most unexpectedly. The woman noted how he cried all the time and missed her presence immensely. Clearly, seeing the older man reeling from his wife's loss was a painstakingly difficult sight for his granddaughter.

A MESSAGE FROM HER GRANDFATHER

So without hesitation, she immediately responded to her grandpa's message and wrote, "Yes! I'll be over around 7! Would you like me to get you something from the store or anything for dinner?" Her grandpa quickly responded:

"Could you pick up applesauce? The cinnamon kind. And if you go somewhere with [mashed] potatoes, I would like that because I have no teeth and can only eat soft things. Ha. Love you, Grandpa."

Elizabeth then told her grandpa she would see him soon. The delighted older man thanked her and called her "his favorite granddaughter." The TikToker light-heartedly noted in her video that she was his only granddaughter.

When it was nighttime, the woman revealed that her granddad made her bed like he did when she was little and placed her favorite doll of her late grandma. Then, he made sure his granddaughter had water for bed, gave her a flashlight in case she got scared and waved her good night.
