My Grandpa Hibbitt remembered

Category: Sharing Memories

My Grandpa Hibbitt (Charles George Hibbitt) died this day in 1972. I was nine years old and I remember the last time I saw him when I waved goodbye to him in the hospital. Instinctively, I remember thinking this would be the last time I would see him and I was right. He was so weak and frail standing there in his red dressing gown waving to his family. He must have felt so sad.

The photo is of him in happier times with my Gran, my Dad, my elder brother and me outside my grandparents' cottage in East Allington, Devon. Taken on my fifth birthday.
