Hey Doug...

Hard to believe so much time has passed since I stopped in here. What a lovely surprise to see Bill and Gene Lynes and read their kind remembrances! Well, what a sad time for us, having to say good-bye to Mom just after New Year's, and sending her across the Great Divide to you and Dad. My heart is in shreds, the family 50-50 now...half on your side, half on ours...

We made it to your park this year, took Peg, Becky, and Rachel out there. You'd love the girls, they are upright, outdoor loving, honest and fun. Sassy too. Our daughter, number 3, the one who was born the year you were taken, got married last year to a guy a lot like you. Loves the outdoors, is looking for a law enforcement career. I am scared to death of course! But I won't drop a discouraging word. He is so good for our little girl! I also got my first grandbaby this year, an adorable little boy. You'd love him, I know! You were so good with matt and sarah...

Anyway, sorry for rambling. Just want you to know you are always in our hearts, and now when we visit the cemetery we'll be coming with both Henry's for you and a lovely bottle of Port for Mom...it's getting to be a real family home out there isn't it? What with all the grandparents, parents, cousins and all...

Missing you, loving you...

Your sis,
