so happy, yet so sad
My oldest daughter had her baby 2-10-11. His name is Bryan Scott. Bryan after my husband and Scott after his daddy's father, who has also passed away. This should be the happiest time of my life. He is so beautiful, he has Bryan's nose. I stood in the hospital room yesterday and was holding him and talking to him and had to put him down so that I could go to the corner and cry. I just broke down. There are so many things that only grandpa can teach him and he will miss that. He will miss out on meeting the best man in the world, Bryan, his grandpa. This is not fair. My youngest daughter is very sad and upset also, because when she has kids they will never get to know their grandpa. My daughters and I will teach him everything about grandpa, but its just not the same. Why, why, oh why does it have to be this way? He was such a great grandpa to Johnny and Mikie. But they are so young (just turned 3 & 4) that they probably won't be able to remember grandpa. This is such a great tragedy. I never knew that a person could be so happy yet so sad. But unfortunately I have had to learn this lesson in life.
