In Memory

Warning:  The beginning of this video contains extremely graphic birth scenes

This is a little early for Karsie's two month birthday, but we wanted to give a tribute to Karsie's grandparents that are no longer with us.  Every generation gives to the next, and we think they did a good job.

P.S.  We would also like to say Happy Grandparent's Day to Marie Koch

Happy Grandparent's Day!

Dear Nana Royal, Grandpa Royal, and Grandma Turner,

I am working hard to get out of the NICU so that we can all be together at the same time.  I have loved getting to be held by all of you at different times, but I can't wait until you can all fight for me at once.  Thank you Grandma Turner for dropping everything this weekend to come down and see me for just a little time.  I'm sorry I was so tired when you came, but when you held me, you put me right to sleep.  Nana Royal, thank you so much for helping Mommy with taking care of me.  When Daddy is gone, you make that time seem much shorter by being there to help. Grandpa Royal, you are so nice to me as you come in right after you have had a long day at work. It's hard to stay awake when you are there because you calm me.  Thank you so much for praying with me too.  I am also missing not getting to meet Grandpa Turner.  From what Daddy tells me, he was a great man, and I will meet him in heaven one day.  But not for a long time.  Thank you all for loving me so much.  

Karsie Gene
