Today Oct 26, 2018...

This time of year more so than ever is a time of reflection for me. Today started off with a costume contest at RES for Kelsea, she tied for 3rd place in the most original category. Why does this matter? It matters because I’m having to type it in on this iPhone rather than telling you face to face, though you’d think it was silly, it matters because it’s part of your legacy. Nichole’s 2 girls also participated.

Today is drizzling rain & just out right yucky, best I remember 28 years ago it had been a very similar kind of day with the weather. I worked at K-mart at the time part time & got off went to Three Springs ball park for a Co-Ed softball game, why does this matter because over & over in my reflection I remember you telling Moma what good is that going to do you all, that’s not gonna put food on the table nor money in your pocket. You were right it couldn’t do that but it kept me out of trouble. I often think wish Brian Woodcock had of participated in something that kept him out of trouble but it didn’t. He is the reason I’m typing this on this website. He & I are very close to the same age but my life took a better path. I will be employed next month for 21 years @ BGMU, utility company that serves the city of Bowling Green. I’ve been married soon to be 10 years in the spring, we’ve got a gorgeous soon to be 8 year old, why does this matters because this is part of you & your legacy.

Not to say that Moma & Daddy didn’t have a had in the way I turned out because they absolutely did, but they too learned from you, hard work never hurt anyone, honesty & integrity are values you want to be used when people reflect & remember you.

I am soon to be 46 years old & never have I ever heard a bad word said against you or your name & for that Pa, that tells what kind of person you were. The values you had & showed were honorable. I only hope we can continue to represent the Flora name the same way you did.

Next year we’ll have to go back to Frankfort & fight but rest asssure yourself we will do so. We’ll keep fighting til there’s no fight left.

RIP Pa! We love you & miss you always.
