Awesome video. What a wonderful treat and honor.


At the end of August, Karwowski braved his ailments, put on his WWII gear and walked his granddaughter Joanna down the aisle at her wedding. He passed away two days later.

It's quite lovely but I have to say having armed soldiers as part of your bridal retinue is a bit unusual.

Grandfathers are awesome. Both of mine were incredible men who taught me valuable life lessons and were there to offer my mother any kind of help she needed after my dad died when I was 11.

When I was 19, both of my grandfathers passed away within 23 days of each other. To say I was devastated would be an understatement.

Both of them made sure that they had attended my graduations and the milestones of my life.

This fine man saw his granddaughter married to a man he believed would treasure her as she deserved and he could rest.

What a beautiful thing love is.

It's amazing how some people can hang on until a major life event they want to be a part of is over before passing. My wife's grandmother was over 100, and rapidly failing, but she hung on until the big 100th birthday bash party for her where all here kids and grandkids and nieces an nephews and all showed up. She basked in all the love and attention and was all smiles looking at her whole family, then passed quietly in her sleep a bit over a week later.

Sure looked to me that future husband had a love and respect for Grandpa just the same. Loving your in laws much as your own immediate family is a treasure in and by itself.
