"Well yesterday was your 17th anniversary of when you had left us Daddy. It was a very ruff day to get thru, but I had made it thru yet again for another yr with-out you. I miss you so much! Sometimes I get so very mad ...ask why did you have to be drafted into Vietnam, for if you never had been drafted into the Army, Then you would still be here today with me."
