Thursday night when I was tucking Lindsey in she was crying a bit. She's been upset about Grandma passing. She often asks me to tell her a story about when I was a little boy. She didn't ask, but I sat down next to her and I told her this story instead:

It was pretty hectic here before you were born, mom had been on bedrest and we just started the new company. When you were maybe 3 weeks old, we had so many things to do I was overwhelmed. Then Mom needed to go the hospital because she wasn't feeling well, and I can remember as if it were yesterday Standing alone with you two newborn babies in my arms in the living room with no idea what I was going to do and I only had a few weeks of experience. I was feeding and taking care of you, getting you all swaddled in your crib, washing bottles, making formula and all of the other things that needed doing. I didn't even have time to figure out my next move.

Turned out I didn't need to worry, even though Grandma and Grandpa were grieving over Uncle Craig passing they not only showed up to help us, they had a trunk full of food and cloths. I didn't even ask them for help. They stayed for weeks and helped take care of you and Lauren and me. They saved us! Grandma made meals and helped with baths and formula and they took care of everything I did not have time to do. Grandpa helped feed you, kept me informed of the news and kept things squared away and fixed up around here and helped Grandma.

I wasn't getting much sleep at the time because of all the things that were going on and I didn't want you to wake them in the night when it was time for a diaper change or feeding because they were having a hard time with Craig's loss and they needed sleep too. But Grandma got up anyway whenever she heard us.

I can still hear her say Jim? from her voice down the hall and I pray I will never forget it. She wanted to make sure I knew she was ready to help if we needed her.

They stayed until mom was better and came home and even for some time after. They helped us with so many things and gave many hugs and kisses. Over the years Grandma and Grandpa helped us in so many ways I have forgotten many of the things they have done for us. I'll tell you this though, there was never a time in your life Grandma didn't offer to help when she was able.

And that's why I know Grandma is your guardian angel baby. She always has been.

Of all my mom's friends, your mom was my favorite. She was always so kind. I enjoyed visiting with her so much when I'd run into her. Always felt like she really sincerely cared about what was going on with my family. And I know that she was very proud of you guys. I hope our folks are together again enjoying each other!

Hi Terri and family. Sorry to hear the loss of your Mom, Lorraine. My mom and I stopped by your house on Springdale in January and had a great visit. Your daughters were there and the life of the house...fun! Great memories of your mom and dad and hanging in the basement with your dog Chico. Take Care. Linda
