Congratulations Grandpa,

Glad to hear that everyone is doing well. Looks like you arrived in a timely fashion and came through the delivery without a hitch. :-)

Best Regards. – Grandpa Len.

Congrats to you and your daughter (grandma to). The left coast Karnak sees many opportunities for you and Kai in the future. For you and Kai:

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
