"Happy Birthday Willie!  I am having dinner with the boys tonight as they sit and watch football. Vince is off to Hawaii again tomorrow.  He just got back from doing a 6 month contract working for America Corps.  He got to see alot of California.  He started in Santa Cruz, worked outside of Palm Spring and in Lake Tahoe.  This will be Vince's third year in a row in Hawaii for Halloween!

The Buckster is living with Fred here in Boise and working at Construction.  He has worked with this company for 2 years and doing well!  He just bought an old jeep cherokee to get around.  Thanks god he is off that motorcycle and not trying to ride his bike 10 miles across town anymore.

We lost mom a few months ago, so I hope you two are up there living it up!  I miss you always and i know i say it everytime but I  see you in both of these boys!   I LOVE THAT!   You would be a proud poppa!"

"Looking at old photos today. Working on getting them to load onto this site. So many memories.  Our house in Marysville, with the big bouy swings you made in the back yard.  Willie always had so much fun with the kids. Taking them hiking, crabing at the beach, putting all the kids to work helping with stacking of the wood.  Hiding easter eggs in the forest with money in them. We took Aubrey, Ashley, Buckster, Vince, Neighbor kids, and friends camping and to the lake.  Always sitting around the camp fire, giving rides on the jet ski's, going out on the boat.   Fun times in Olalla Canyon with our friends John and Chaun,hiking, rock climbing and playing in the snow.  Everyone has a great story  or memory with the Willie man!"

"Thinking of you always but especially this time of the year!  I will never forget!  SO many thing remind me of you.  Tears come to my eyes with  just the thoughts.  The corn and sunflowers that you planted, The sports that are on, Hoodie sweatshirts, Bon Fires and choppin wood!
Your birthday, Vince's Birthday and Ian's birthday!  You were always getting ready to go fishing this time of the year. When I am in Ballard and at Fisherman's terminal. Anytime I see a red miata, or the way William is always riding his bike..... and crashing!  LOL  Theresa was just here visiting and all those times we shared with our families.  Baby Jaynie and Olive.  All the nick names you gave everyone.  I still have your name in my contact list on my phone.  I see your face, your mannerisms and your personality when I look at our boys.  That all makes me happy and sad!  I will never forget!  XOXOXO"

"Forever

I wrote your name in the sky
and the wind blew it away.  

I wrote your name in the sand
and the ocean washed it away.

I wrote your name in my heart
and there it will remain forever.
