I had the opportunity not long ago to hang out with your three oldest granddaughters. Each one of them with their own personalities. We laughed and sang and had brownie sundaes for breakfast. It reminded me of all the times I got to babysit Ben and Jess, amazing parents they have become. I am pretty sure you already know that though.

Brother continue to watch over us from above. Until we see each other again. Love you.
