Dad, another year is coming to a close. As I look back on the last few years, my heart aches for all that you have missed. Your great-grandson, Knox, is an amazing child! He is so very smart and has the biggest heart! He calls me Hunnie! He has your eyes! Courtanie and Aaron are wonderful. Both have good careers and are the absolute best parents in the world! Brittanie is doing fantastic. She is so like me in so many ways. She is in the insurance field... Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Sean retired in January 2017 due to lung issues from being deployed to Iraq. He is loving his retired life. I am still active with the West Texas Ladies of Law Enforcement. I bleed blue! I am so very happy. Job, family and life in general is good. I think of & miss you daily. I Love You Always! Merry Christmas, Dad!
