I know both our children love you dearly; they are outside the door now,
waiting.Do you remember how I panicked like a mad man when Jonathon was born? I
can still picture you laughing and smiling at me now, as I clumsily held him for
the very first time in my arms.I watched as your laughter faded into tears, as I
stared at him and cried my own tears of joy.
Sarah and Tom arrived this morning with little Tessie. Can you remember how
we both hugged each other tightly when we saw our tiny granddaughter for the
first time? I can't believe she will be eight next month. I am trying not to
cry, my love, as I tell you how beautiful she looks today in her pretty dress
and red shiny shoes, she reminds me so much of you that first day we met. She
has her hair cut short now, just like yours was all those years ago. When I met
her at the door her smile wrapped around me like a warm glove, just like yours
used to do, my darling.
