Great story. My Grandparents are the ones that got me into fishing. When my grandmother was in her late eighties and in the rest home she always asked me to take her fishing. I took her off the bank many times but once I decided to take her in my 14 foot boat. Well she was a big gall and not in the best of health which made things interesting in my little boat. I asked her if she wanted to put on a life jacket and I rember her saying "I can swim and there are worst way to go". Off we went and caught lots of fish had a great time and thats the happiest I remember her during that time period.
