Twenty-six years ago, while I was pregnant with my older son, Joann inserted herself in my life as a surrogate grandmother to my then 3- and 5-year-old daughters. What a blessing she and Irv were during those child-rearing years! They often invited my children to spend a day “helping with cleaning”, but my kids learned so much about life and interacting with an older generation. So grateful to God for supplying that influence when my own family was so far away.
