My former son-in-law, Diallo Grace (or Dee, as I usually call him), called me tonight to let me know that my two oldest grandkids, Mya and Camron, were baptized and received First Communion at the Easter Vigil at St. Lucy’s in Racine, Wisconsin.
Though Dee is not Catholic, he had told me last time I was out that he had talked to the kids and they had all decided they would like to be baptized in the Catholic Church. I got choked up when he told me. I can’t wait to get out and visit with the grandkids this year.
Dee and his fiancé, Brittany, have a toddler son, Marley, and Brittany has a daughter by a previous relationship, Symara. They are a joyful little family and I am grateful for the hospitality they always show me when I am in town. I am deeply honored that our mutual affection is so strong that the kids chose to be Catholic, like their Poppy, and that both Dee and Brittany completely supported them.
My grandson plays football and baseball. Dee hopes he is good enough that, later on, his nickname will be “Amazing” Grace. My granddaughter received a countywide award last year for being the top student in the county for her grade level. It was a Martin Luther King award for black achievement. I laughed and told Dee I wished they had similar white awards so Mya could take both.
Ha, Dee! Don’t be surprised if next year you are all in the fold!
