Myla had her Transitional Kindergarten celebration this morning. For her performance she counted to 15 in Spanish. She looked radiant in front of the crowd and was so proud. It's such a joy to be a parent. Myla is almost the age that I was when you died. I grieve when i think about how small and innocent I was and how much was taken from you, me and our family. I talk about you often to my kids. They call you grandpa Art and ask me if I miss you. I tell them I miss you everyday and that you were an amazing person who helped others. I love you. I wish you could be here as grandpa. You are present in all of our hearts.
