I am so happy that "ilcapo" has stuck around (much to his dismay sometimes) long enough to have a REAL and Lasting relationship with our children. All I heard for several days after he left was how much they loved him, missed him and wanted him to come back. We didn't even have any complaints this time from Chase about giving up his room.
We had so much fun.
I especially love hearing him tell stories. I wish I had a better memory. He told us this great story about how they got their first cat, "Francis" (the first of I think 13 Francises). It would be such a wonderful children's book. I need to commission Dave or my mother-in-law to illustrate it. And there were so many more good times.We love you Great Grandpa! And in the words of Boz II Men, "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye." xoxo
