Dear Yuna,

Bear is the most precious baby I have ever seen! How fortunate that his mother is a renowned photographer who can capture the essence of tender father love. I don’t believe it has ever been done before. I hope you make a book of the unique, exquisite photographs you are taking, including ones of you three.

Are you rocking Bear in his rocking chair that his daddy and uncles were rocked in?
(And so was I) I can’t wait to see you all. Hopefully, it will be this summer.
Great Grandma Pat
