Since Heaven isn’t on my cellular plan, this letter will have to do. I know we haven’t spoken in some time, but a lot has been going on. I’m sure you’re watching from above, but I’ll give you a quick recap anyway.
The time has come for me to gain another title. It would seem your oldest grandson is going to make me a Grammie. I still can’t see myself as a “grandma” and I was going to go with “Anya” as it’s Hungarian for “grandma” but I’ve settled on “Grammie”. In just eight short weeks, my first grandchild will make her appearance. If she’s anything like her father, she’ll be weeks late and we’ll see her in mid-April instead of the beginning of April.
Her name will be Katie Rose. Tell Sis that her “Bubby” chose to name his first child after her (well her nickname, anyway). Rose was chosen by his wife; a very special client of hers. So my granddaughter will be named after some pretty inspiring women.
Katie would have made you a great-grandma and would have made Sis, a great-aunt. The lil miss is excited to become an aunt. I wish you were both here to share this special time with me. I miss you very much.
Give each other a hug from me and some day (not too soon), I’ll give my hugs in person.
