Big Daddy's Birthday

My grandson Forrest was named after his great-grandfather. Big Daddy knew this before he died, but he never got to meet the baby Forrest.

Big Daddy was a wonderful man. There are many other attributes I could tell you about Big Daddy, how he was always there for me when my children were small. Even though I was his ex-daughter-in-law, he treated me like a daughter.

I am so glad my children keep his memory alive for their children. Shan and Max took flowers to his grave site on Good Friday. Amy shows the children pictures of him along with stories so they can know him. This last weekend was Big Daddy's birthday. Amy was telling Forrest about it. Sweet little three year old boy that he is, trying to understand life and death, looked at his mother and asked, "Is he going to be alive this year?" Out of the mouths of babes.
