A year gone by...

It was a year ago...the world lost a very loving man...Heaven gained an angel.  A year ago, on January 20, I lost my Grandfather.  He passed on and we were grateful that he was at peace.  It has been a long year of missing a great man!
I was around 7.5 months pregnant at the time.  My son will never get to meet him.  But he will carry part of his memory with him always.  This past Christmas, Haden was given one of my Grandfather's ties.  My March baby was given a piece to remember his Irish heritage with, a green tie with shamrocks. 
In Grandpa's honor and memory I dressed my little boy up in that green tie.  It's a little big for him now but he will grow into it and wear it often, I'm sure.  He looked so darn cute in it today! 


Grandpa,
     We all miss you and know you are watching over us all from up above.  I promise you that I will raise my son to be a man you will be proud of, a man who will carry on a piece of your legacy, an honorable man, a man like you!  We will miss you always and remember you forever.  We love you.
