When I was four years old, my grandfather passed away. Not only was it a heartbreaking experience for my entire family, but it left my grandmother without her beloved husband of over 40 years.
Soon after, my parents decided to invite her to move in with us, and she's become like a third parent to me ever since. People with close relationships to their grandparents know there's nothing you wouldn't do for them.
One person who knows this sentiment to be true is 25-year-old Fu Xuewei.
Fu was only 10 years old when her parents separated and she moved to Chengdu, China to be raised by her grandparents.
Eight years later, Fu moved to Switzerland and then Singapore for university, but made sure to keep the close bond she shared with her loved ones. The entrepeneur said she considers her grandparents as her "close friends" who she can talk about anything to, and even go to clubs with. She said her grandfather was always a "macho" man, but spoiled her rotten.
Sadly, Fu's grandfather became critically ill last September and doctors said the 87-year-old man could pass away at "any time."
Once she found out about his diagnosis, Fu decided she had to fulfill his dying wish.
