The Joy of Grandchildren
Some of the great joys of our life now are our grandchildren!! Our daughters Jen, Carolyn, and Catherine and their husbands are phenomenal parents to their rapidly growing families. It's exciting and inspiring for us! The saga of the Brown Family has included 3 children in the first five years of marriage- John Paul, Gabriel, and Monica. The Berg Clan has followed a similar pattern with two sons, Frederick and Jack, and Gemma, our youngest grandchild, born April 23, 2008. The Heil Family saga includes Lydia, who will be one year old on July 24. In December Lydia will learn to share Mommy and Daddy when her new brother or sister is born. Until July 2007 we had only grandsons, but three granddaughters have been born in less than a year! Thank you, Carolyn and Luis, Catherine and Tom, and Jen and Matthew, for your beautiful marriages and families. Your children are a great gift. As Grandad says, life goes on! Thank the Lord!!!
