Grandmom, we miss you so very nuch! Not a day goes by that we don't think about you. Ecspecially, your baby Jayce :) We have your pictures all over and I know you are looking down on us because everything seems to be getting better everyday. Jimmy's dad is now with you now, so you and Grandpa play some cards with him and tell him we love him too <3

Nature

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.
