Hi Emma Grace,
Today is July 18, 2017 and tonight Grandpa and I went out for ice cream.  He came back to the car with a cup of peach yogurt with gummie bears on top! He said he remembered the time you asked him if you could get gummie bears on your frozen yogurt and of course he said yes. I enjoyed my treat thinking about you.
Love, Grammie

Hi Emma Grace,
It is July 8, 2017 and today is a big day for me because 40 years ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and we named him Todd.  Your father.  He was born in Alexandria Hospital, Alexandria, Va. He was healthy and happy and I couldn't wait to get him home on Ferry Landing Rd. to meet his sisters, Dama Jennifer and Jody Allison.  He was over 9lbs when he was born and do you know he turned himself over in the bassinet at 10 days old!  Yes, he was a rambunctious little guy then too.  Your sisters loved him so much and we were a happy family. My mother was so happy I had a boy because I already had two girls and she knew the joy of having boys and girls because as you know, I come from a large family of seven children.  Three girls and four boys.  It was all good!
I will post again soon and hope you are okay and safe.  Our love to you Emma Grace.  You are part of me and I am part of you.  Nobody can take that away even if you are not allowed to see us.  Always in my heart ❤️.
Love, your Grammie
