    The children could make their own "memory boxes" about granddad, with these pictures, photos you have taken and some pictures of him when he was younger to tell something of his life. Maybe even get your dad to write them a letter to be opened on their 16th or 18th birthday so he can express his love for them?

      The problem right now is that would be incredibly emotional for him. And when you get emotional, your throat constricts. For a man who already has a narrow airway, that is not a good thing.

      I try to keep as even keel as possible around him right now.
