This was the only time Pops was to meet his daughters daughter. His granddaughter Arwen. For just ten days they spent time together, playing tickle monster and three little piggies with her toes, making her giggle, chortle and shower him with love and gummy grins.
Dirk and Carina spoke virtually every day, or every other day, and never a week went past without him asking after one or another of his grandkids and great grandkids. Reach out to those that will not long be here, for once they are gone, so is the opportunity for gratitude and connection.
