It is all right, because we a have each other.


Grandad did not walk, he laughed at things that were not funny, and he talked with a robot.

He did not always need a robot. At first, he could walk , and talk and play just like you. He liked to play games, sing songs, and give lots of hugs to his family. Then one morning he started to feel funny, he tripped lots, he lost his voice and his family noticed too.

At first they did not know what was wrong with him,

From a young age, I’ve known that my family was different.


but it was all right, because they all had each other.


So they all went to the hospital, the whole family, the doctors were friendly and took good care of him but even they could not find out why he wa

Robot


He knew that the robot bits helped him as well as they could, and that he was still him inside though sometimes, he really felt like a robot, a real-life robot, and it made him sad......

he missed his old legs and his old voice,


but it was all right, because they all had each other.


You and I both know that we have each other, and that that is something to be happy about, though one day, we might not all be together.


But no matter where we are in the world, whether in a different country, place, home or even up in heaven looking down on us all...........

... it is all right, because we all have each other, in our hearts.


...in our hearts.

My grandad has Motor Neurone Disease, which affects his speech, mobility and makes him dependent on machines and his family.
