Dear Mom and Dad,
How you lived in a great era. Now we live in fear the last few weeks due to a worldwide flu epidemic killing thousands of people. We all are healthy but are banned from going anywhere except for groceries.. and essential things. This is controlled by the governor and President. Life has changed and we can't visit anyone hoping that we can get back to our normal life of gardening and fishing. We miss both of you. Love you,

Happy Birthday Mom! Well as you see we have the snowstorm of the century (maybe) on your birthday. It hit NE Wisconsin Green Bay, Manitowoc, Marinette, all of northern WI, and up by us. Waves are 15 to 20 ft or higher on the lakes. There is still ice on Lake Superior out of Munising, We still have over two feet of snow on ground and it is mid-April! We want to start planning garden and flowers. I am going to try to grow more lilies this year and hopefully grow some more peonies! Miss you and Dad both! Love, Marty and Becky and the dogs!

Good morning Daddy, Mom. Today is 13 years Daddy since you went to be with the Lord and mom. All those days you spent working, and still finding time to take care of your house, the yard garden and then fishing on the weekends. All those walleyes I hope are with you! Today Jan. 20 terrible winds and cold bitter weather - winds up to 70 mph. I hope you have many flowers and gardens!

Good morning Mom - Dad, It is 2012 can you believe this? Jeanice is doing poorly - got letter from Marge but I don't know anymore. Marge said they brought hospice in and she is at Harmony. For us, life is going on. Marty needs a job and I pray for him daily. They are cutting my hours at work so I won't start till sometime in May. R.J. is ok and pray for Alex. Winter is warm so far.

Our Mother,

• Independent, quiet but vocal in expressing herself
• In growng up our house was cleaned daily, and the kitchen was spotless
• She loved to play the organ and sing - even with no one around

Mom loved to fish and sometimes caught more fish than daddy! I remember daddy always would get mad as she would not say she had a fish on until she had it by the boat and then would say I think I need the net!

How right your are, time is going by so fast.  I have been dealing with many issues, financial at times, trying to keep up the house, arthritus issues, and eye sight cataracts are bothering me. Going to go next week to check it out with a specialist.  Since I wrote last we lost our Alex and R.J. and have 2 obnoixious doctor jeckle/mr. hyde male labs named Rambo  and Rocky but they have finally straightened out still not like our other dogs but we still love them.  I am meeting Doug and Marge this weekend at Grand Marais.  Being a home owner it's one thing after another - so much work, now the pressure water tank went so have to replace that.  We have our garden in but still have plenty of work to do - want to put mulch out to keep weeds down.  We had a skunk digging up lawn so I spread out some Seven dust chemical spray - seems like he is gone.  Had some big storms last night, but the rain is great for the garden.  Trying to grow some raspberry bushes from starter plants - will seei  We have not been fishing or camper.  We bought a camper (yes not paid for till next year) but making extra payments towards it.  Every day I think of all the fun times and yes painful times and I am sorry that I didn't appreciate you more and the tough things both of you were dealing with in your lives.  Love you always,

Mom and Dad

This is to both of you.  How I miss everything we did together all the fishing and camping adventures from catching those limits to walleyes on Lake tomahawk, to getting soaked in the tent camping, to taking walks through the campground and the walleye adventures on Little Bay de Noc.  Our lives have changed and now I trying to live life out - I still have our boat but situations that have come into our lives has but a temporary damper on enjoying those things such as fishing and camping.  I am trying to think positive but I enjoy each day - so far I am healthy and Marty with Alex and R. J.  We do have a large garden this year and Daddy I am trying to get a huge flower garden going.  We are struggling but trying to keep faith in the Lord that he has a plan for us and hopefully we will make the wise choices in the future which will guide us to living a proper life in this world until we meet in the future.  I love you always and you are the greatest!

Love,

Beck & Marty
