My great-nephew James, born on March 15 and his grandfather (my brother) John.

John  drove 456.9 miles from Corona, California to Petaluma, California to meet him.

There is a sweetness to this picture he sent me — a newborn baby with open eyes looking at his grandfather.

I’m sure John was telling him an important family story, one of many for little James to hear. But it looked like they were both enjoying the moment and the conversation.
