Another year has passed. I've been thinking a lot lately about how things would be different if you were still here. And how much you have missed; twelve kids' birthdays x4, twelve Christmases, twelve father's days, 3 graduations, a wedding, the birth of two beautiful granddaughters, twelve hunting seasons with your boys... the list goes on and on. Every day I realize that I am blessed to still be here for all of these occasions and sad that you're not. Things happen but know that I would wish you back if I could for your kids.
