I miss you everyday that goes by in a way words can’t begin to describe, and today most of all. Today it’s been 20 years since we lost you and I can still vividly remember every single painful detail of that day. But by insane odds or divine intervention your very first grandchild was born on the same day you passed. Today is her first birthday, and there is nothing in this world that helps heal a hurt heart like your granddaughters adorable little giggle. I got her a toy crab that sings and runs around on the floor. We spent the better part of an hour watching Olivia crawl around chasing it, and your mom (my wonderful grandmother) told me it’s exactly the sort of gift you’d have bought her. Today will never be easy, but from now on we’ll be spending it surrounded by loved ones celebrating your granddaughters birthday. I think you would have liked that.
