"Well Daddy another year has passed and here we are in 2017. Bet you never imagined 2017. We had little to none winter. It's nasty outside as we are watching our new president. I know you were probably shocked when we got our first black president 8 years ago. Today we get Trump, a multi-millionaire business man. Sure you have a better idea of our future. Daddy I think of you often and miss you. My heart hurts when I think of the mess we created after you died. Daddy I swear, I still don't know what happened. It was something I never expected and hope you can forgive me. I did not want to mark your legacy so negatively. You know that Annelle has passed on, I believe she was in a great deal of pain. For that I'm glad she passed on. Vanessa is doing okay. Eugene is struggling to find a life without Cynthia. I must admit that I am beginning to realize that I am old. Since Thanksgiving 2015 I have lost five people. Jerry Stark over Thanksgiving. You know Jimmy died on March 22nd, 2016. Raymond Dornak died in December, Roger Stark, Jerry's son died between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then poor sweet Deborah Matlock passed away on 12/27. Is it getting crowded up there? Well I am going to close on that. I love you Daddy and thank you for giving me the best Dad ever."
"Happy birthday Daddy. Wish you were still here with us. We could go to Kelly's and eat chicken & dressing. I know, the cornbread will choke you and get stuck under your plate. But remember the dressing there is the best you can get at a diner. I would love to fix you a chocolate pie.Daddy I can't wait to see you. Hope the fishing is good up there. See you later."
"Love you Daddy"
"I love you Daddy. You are loved and honored. We miss you but we know God needed a few good men."
Have a suggestion for us?
