Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.
-- Alex Haley
Colin is one lucky little boy because he has a Nana, Grandad, Gammy, Grandpa, a Great-Grammy, Great-Grandma and a Great-Poppy, plus pseudo-grandparents with a Mema and a Penka!! If only we could all be so lucky! There is something very special about the bond of a grandchild and a grandparent.
I have very fond memories growing up because I got to see my grandparents all of the time! They are all very special people in my life and I am still fortunate to have 3 of my 4 grandparents! My Pop-Pop passed away when I was in 5th grade but I had a special love for him as well.
Colin will grow up knowing his grandparents and great-grandparents very well and will have very special bonds with them, just like I do with mine...They have all been so supportive of Colin in his short 10 months of life. Thank you Nana, Grandad, Gammy, Grandpa, Great-Grammy, Great-Grandma, Great-Poppy, Mema and Penka!!

The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children's children. It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future. ~Charles and Ann Morse
