Her Grandmother Has Dementia, But Her Friend's Act Of Kindness Was Unforgetable

When I arrived in the UK on the first leg of my recent trip, the person who met me at the airport was one of my wonderful friends from KindSpring. She was able to give me an old phone which was a fabulous kindness to me as I'd previously told her I'd be having to leave mine at home as I share it with my partner.
It was massively valuable as I could keep in touch with people, but it's worth rocketed when I visited my Grandmum soon after. As I said, she doesn't really get out any more. I took the phone with me when I went out for a walk, and used it to take snaps of all the landmarks I passed. When I got back, we looked at all the photos and she told me some wonderful memories built up over 90 years of living in a town she no longer sees.
So, Kindspring friend, your kindness to me turned into an amazing kindness for my grandmum. Sadly, her condition probably means she's forgotten already, but I haven't and I think you're fab.
