It just hit me again as I was putting the twins to bed how they will never know their "Pap." My oldest daughter was Papaw's girl. She still ask me when he is going to come back to Mammie's house. I've tried to explain to her that he isn't able to. I know the twins will never get to have the same bond that my oldest daughter does. I found out that I was pregnant with the twins 1 month after he passed. They were due on what would have been his and my mom's 45th wedding anniversary. It almost made it like they were connected even though they will never meet.
your little ones have a wonderful person watching them at all times now, as for your older child i hope she understands after while, that must be tough to hear her ask. My son was born on his Great grandfathers birthday he will have never met him but i do think he watches over him. i am not even religious but i can for sure sense presence in his room as he sleeps, it is comforting , not scary.
This month on the 28th my dad will have been gone for a year. Some days are harder than others, I still cry when I think about it so I try not to.. I cannot tell you how many times I have said I need my daddy since he died..
