don't be sorry for the long note, your 5 yr old will not forget you, and you can rebuild relationship... make sure you take a picture of you and the kids, and give one of them to you daughter.
to show the kids, if your son or daughter in law or both are close to you they will not allow the kids to forget you.

Maybe you can call like every other week, if you don' t have the long distance service where you can call more often.

maybe your kids can come to visit you more. I know that 5 half hours seems long, but it shorten that some folks has to put up with for their parents lives much future.

I've never been a long distance gparent, but I'm a grandparent, and hope the best for you
