Brief prose reflecting on family, in this case to me, an individual who's family has been all over the place, who hasn't felt close to much of it except direct parents and siblings. Everything, including punctuation, is on purpose.

P.S. Having some trouble fixing the paragraph form. Will fix ASAP......drat!

I thought I wouldn't care if and when any of my remaining grandparents died, that the only grandparent I loved was Janine, who died before I turned four. In fact, my l last grandmother died sometime in the past year; I can no longer remember if it was even in the past six months. I thought I didn't care; I didn't cry for her, nor called my dad, nor his dad. I thought myself completely unaffected, a bit weird-ed out by the idea that she wasn't around anymore, but that was all.

I think my mom's dad won't last another year. And today, when my dad gave my sister and I his mother's inheritance I learned something.

I was wrong.

I do care.

I don't know why I care, but I do care.

I do care.
