This year especially I miss you at Christmas. We always had the greatest Christmas Eves together. I'm sorry you never met Jake. He's so much like Jay. Mikey is getting so big and he talks about visiting you and putting the puzzle together. Family is starting to mean a lot more to the boys now that I'm getting older too. Don't worry about me because George is still in my life and loves and supports me. I love you, Mommy and Franny and miss all of you every day!! Merry Christmas.
