Isn't Ty's great grandpa, Ty, the cutest old man you ever did see? I cracked right up when he came to the door in a "Ty" hat - his golf buddies made it for him.
It was such a special moment to see Grandpa hold his first great grandson...let alone one named after him. Grandpa was very emotional when we called him with the news. He actually dropped the phone and Ben was fearful we'd given him a heart attack! He told us, this week, that he was just so honored.
It was neat to be able to tell Grandpa why we named our son after him. Grandpa Tyrus has had an incredible life legacy. His successes are monumental (founded his own company, invented his own products, several patents, honorary doctorate, etc, etc), let alone his heart for his family...especially the grandkids. He is an incredible man. If our Tyrus can accomplish half of what his great grandpa Tyrus did, we will know we've done our job well.
We hope our Tyrus will have several more years getting to know his very special namesake...great grandpa, Ty.
