Happy Grandparent's Day PawPaw Dado

Dad,
I will never forget everything you did to help us prepare for Kaitlynn's arrival. You were so full of emotion when Dave and I told you that you were going to be a grandpa. You celebrated with us after the 20 week ultrasound when we found out we were having a girl. You helped us get the basement ready before her birth. You helped us with the nursery and putting the crib together. You met us at the hospital when I was supposed to be induced (little did we know I was already in labor). You waited all night at the hospital until Kaitlynn was born. You were there for over 10 hours. You didn't leave the hospital until you got to meet your new beautiful granddaughter. You understood that when you first saw Kaitlynn, I just couldn't give her up for anyone to hold. You waited to hold her until you came back a few hours later. You helped us get her ready for her newborn pictures. You helped us home from the hospital. You came over almost everyday to bond with Kaitlynn and to give me / us a "break" and some adult conversation. You were there for so many of Kaitlynn's firsts - rolling over, going to a restaurant, sitting in a high chair, illness, taking steps, seeing and playing on the beach (vacation), ear infection, and so much more. I wish you could be here to see more of her firsts. To see who she is now. To see how much she has grown. You would be so proud of her. She is so amazing. I think she remembers you. She talks about you. She knows who you are when she sees a picture of you. Sometimes when she sees your picture, she gets teary-eyed. She makes some of the same faces you used to make. She is an amazing little girl. Please keep watch of her as she lives life here on earth. Always be with her. Until we are together again,
Love always and forever.
You will never be forgotten.
Happy Grandparent's Day to the world's best grandfather!
