The most precious gift going

Posted on Sat, Jul 31, 2010 at 12:40 AM

This goes out to Kaelan, my step-grandson, who 8 days ago entered this world:

I will love you and protect you with my last dying breath, now and always. You have given me another chance to play daddy, even if only for a short time. When I saw you come into this world, and heard you cry, it sent delightful shivers thru to my very soul, if I still have one all these years later. I'm just sorry that I won't be around to see you marry and have babies of your own. But wherever I am, in this world or the next I will still be watching over you, and that is a promise I will never break.

You have made this old suckster see a lot of things he has missed over the years by not having any other babies. And that I really deeply regret. I hp ethat when I'm gone you will always remember what little time we did have, ans say ho to me even if you don't see me anywhere, but I will be there for you, in life or death.

Keep on keeping on little man, and don't let anyone ever give you shit, fight for what you feel in your heart to be right, and always remember, Grampy loves you.—Life Sucks
