It has been awhile. There does not a weekend go by without me wishing you and mom were here to meet my two grandchildren They are the light of my life. You would have my Kay Kay spoiled rotten She would have you wrapped around your little finger. Mom would be crazy about my little imp ZAYZay. Just like mama when he is up to something ( which is almost constant he gets the same little gleam in his eyes and when he succeeds in pulling it off you can see the devil dancing in his eyes just like you could hers. I don't have a place to go send her messages so tell her I love her and have missed her terribly. Also let her know when the lord calls us all home I will be bringing her a mean little boy she can plot trouble with and you a sweet little girl but you can't pay her to much attention cause as always I am still a daddy's girl waiting for your attention. Still doing the parole thing as you know it is a horrible time for my cop's as Kay kay calls them. I love you and mom so very much waiting till the day we can all be together again.
