There is a special bond between a grandparent and a grandchild.
I experienced that special bond with each of my grandparents, doubly so because I was also the first grandchild.
Now that I am a grandparent, I must confess it is a very strong bond. Different from the bond I have with my own children; but just as strong none-the-less.
