I'm a mom. Your grandson is absolutely perfect. I know you have spent time with him before he was born, but I wish more than anything I could see you meet him. I wish I could see you in your grandpa role. I can only imagine how much you'd brag about him (and of course little Miss Orr) considering how much you bragged about your kids. Mom isn't near as humble as you and I are(: and even she brags about her grandbabies.
Daddy, his middle name is after you. I want him to grow up knowing you, and knowing why his middle name is so special.
I love you dad.
