If I was here I would tell you that I’m not supposed to play favorites. But from the moment you were born, there was something special about you. You were the child who felt so much and so deeply. I know how important being a priest was to you given your deep faith but ever since you left the priesthood I’ve prayed that you would find the deep abiding love I shared with your grandfather Shawn. It’s not always easy but it will be the joy and rock of your life. If you’re reading this it must be your wedding day and my prayer has finally been answered. I hope the woman lucky enough to be your wife makes you happy beyond your wildest dreams. She sure as hell better be.” Eric laughs. “Because if she even thinks about hurting you, she will face the wrath of your Grandma Caroline. Wherever I am, I’m with you. I love you, Eric. Grandma Caroline.”
