DEAR JOSHUA OUR FIRST GRANDCHILD:
(this coming Saturday my eldest grandchild will
be 17 years old. he was born just two months
before my husband passed away:
Welcome to the world and our family,
May your life be filled with love.
In everything you see.
You have a precious mother
Who will give you love and tender care,
Your father looked so proud of you
As you peacefully slept there.
He too was our first child
Not so many years ago.
And we're not ashamed to tell you
How we loved him so.
May your life be filled with laughter,
And always wear a smile,
For we're only on this earth
For just a short while.
So as you grow from baby to toddler,
From boyhood to man.
We'll always remember the first time
We saw you.........love from your
Grandad and your Nan.
