Lillian Margaret Strong

 
Last night we met our first Grandchild and fell instantly in love with her. Papa Colin was holding her as we entered the room with Mom Kerry resting after a long 1/2 day delivery. The lights were low and jazz was softly playing on the ipod. Alert little Lillian was yawning and looking around at all the tear stained faces in the room - Serenity, Joy and Thankfulness were the watchwords of the night. Colin Skyped Great Grandma & Great Grandpa from his iphone so they could see their new Great Granddaughter - magical! And so a new adventure begins for Colin & Kerry and our little Lily! We are so blessed.

Wow Mike, I congratulate you and your family on this precious gift! I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU FOR SO LONG! I miss you and because of the length of time I had no idea you two were coming up on being grandparents! My cat's name is Lily so I adore that name already (she's been with me for 15 years)! What a precious baby girl your granddaughter is! My Wyatt is almost 17 months....I'll have to introduce him some day to Lillian....hehehe I hope I see you before but if I don't, I will definitely be at Creation Destination with you and Sue!
God's Blessings to you and your family!
