Today I'm leaving you a bouquet of yellow roses arranged in a pair of cowboy boots. You know you were in my heart and thoughts this past month as Mary Lou took me on a road trip through Texas Hill Country. There were SO many memories of our time together down there. We had lunch in Fredericksburg, dinner at the Blue Bonnet Cafe in Marble Falls and another lunch in Kerrville. I laugh when I remember you and Willard trying to convince this Cali-girl that there were beautiful parts of Texas. We got to see Sammy in Fort Worth. He had his 9th birthday two days after we were there. NINE!!! Our great grandson Brantley will celebrate his 2nd birthday in two weeks.. and Valerie posted just this morning that Kailey slept through the night last night for the first time. You would enjoy those babies so much. FaceBook sent a notice this morning that I signed up 9 years ago today. What an interesting coincidence that it is this DAY. I am very grateful for that link to so many friends. Maria will be here for a visit soon. When she comes we are going to plan a special memorial celebration together. Austin, Nichole and the girls will be here for their spring break next month too. We will be together in a condo at the beach. I know you are happy for us...and yet glad you don't have to get sand between your toes. You are loved and missed!!!

Happy Birthday, Poppie Tom. I can't believe it's been 7 1/2 years since your spirit took its final flight. This is the longest stretch in my life that I have been on my own and I really miss the companionship. You may remember that Gunnar and Anna had their 2nd girl, Elizabeth (we call her Ellie). on August 24. She turned 8 yesterday. Maria had a birthday yesterday as well. We chatted via computer. Your namesake "baby boy" Brantley celebrated his half-year (18 month) birthday yesterday. Didn't realize his b-day was almost perfectly on your 1/2 year date. And Kailie is already 2 months old... and growing so fast. You would be proud of the great Mommy our Valerie has become. And that doesn't discount that she chose to co-parent with Matt. They will celebrate their anniversary this coming week--4 years. I'm leaving you a flower today. You know it's a yellow rose!! I hope you and Momma enjoy the roses.
