Those of us who are lucky enough to know our grandparents can appreciate the special bond we share with them.
No one knows this better than Matthew Stewart, a popular TikToker from Florida, whose relationship with his 88-year-old grandmother Bobbe was so close that he built a special room in her house for her GB to move in, as he called her.
Bobbe captured a smile in a photo.
Stewart wanted to thank his grandmother for everything she had done for him over the years. The videos he posted of his precious grandmother soon captured the hearts of people all over the world.
When her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Stewart wanted to make sure she was safe and moved her in with him and her wife.
The devoted grandson shared the wonderful moment he told GB that she was moving in with him in a video on Instagram in October 2020.
Stewart takes her grandmother to the site where her new house is being built and breaks the news to her that the house includes a bedroom, a living room, and a bathroom just for her so he can move in with them.
GB breaks into tears and says ‘just to know someone loves me’, which Stewart revealed nearly broke her heart to hear.
Stewart said that it was the least he could do for his grandmother, that she had been there for him through the most difficult times of his life, and that he was grateful to be able to return the love she had shown him. over the years.
He later shared another heartbreaking moment in which he decided to turn his house into a salon so he could give his grandmother’s hair a treat, as his regular salon had been closed for some time due to the pandemic.
Despite her lack of knowledge about hair care, he stepped in and gave her beloved GB the best treatment to lift her spirits.
Grandma Bobbe said Stewart made her “beautiful.” She described the experience as special and added that it was a great time with her grandson. The salon session was shared on social media and more than 1.3 million people viewed it.
The last video Stewart shared on his Instagram was of the beautiful moment Stewart and his wife shared the news that they were having a baby and that GB was going to be one big GB. The overwhelmed grandmother was speechless and began to cry. When she finally managed to speak, she said that she was ready to change diapers.
Unfortunately, right after the news broke, GB fell and had to go to rehab to recover. Stewart hoped that the good news from her would help her get better and return home, but sadly the beloved grandmother passed away at the end of January.
On February 13, 2022, the young man celebrated what would have been Grandma Bobbe’s 89th birthday. He shared some of his most beautiful moments in a video on Instagram.
The couple’s daughter is due in April.
This amazing woman brought so much joy to so many people and reminded us all to keep our loved ones close, especially those who have been there for us when we were younger and now need our support in their old age. Rest in peace dear Grandma Bobbe.
