It's 2018 Daddy. Never thought about that year. You will not believe the snow we've had! Of course the worst things are nobody knows how to drive on ice, and the never ending news coverage. Trudy said how many ways can they say it's cold, HA! Patrick is back in Pasadena now. Going to school at Hobby, repairing helicopters and jets. Living alone, trying to prove he can do it. Keep an eye on him Daddy. David is alone, don't know if he'll ever settle down. Deuce, black lab is his child. Working near San Antonio, lives in a 5th wheel he bought. He is great with money Daddy. He misses you and often says he wished you could see how well they all turned out. Meredith find the best fella. His name is Randy Underwood, rancher, farmer, dairy man. Right in Mineola. One of the 1st things she told me was he reminds her of you. Didn't know you made such a lasting impression, huh. Her girls about grown. Mark & Becky still mine. You know he retired from ISMC after 23 years. He has 4 girls, boy is he in for a run. I follow Shaun & Joshua on this facebook thing. Both doing well. Josh married a sweet little girl. As you know I don't keep up with Eugene or Vanessa. All that mess after we lost you left the family fractured forever. Have tried a few times but Vanessa just blows up. After Cynthia died, Eugene sort of dropped off the earth. He & Christopher are close. You will never believe who called me out of the wild blue, Hanky, Weldon McDougle! He finally got out of prison. I made it clear I wanted nothing to do with him & stay away from my family. The strange thing is that it was right after Annelle died. He connected with Glen. I didn't gossip, or say anything, just left it alone. I think of you so often. Still miss you and I love you Daddy. I tell Brooks the one issue I don't like to think about is if there was anything I did to embarrass or shame you. Nothing else really matters. Love you Daddy.

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.
