Hey pops it’s 21 years since the day we all lost you. It seems like yesterday when I walked into that sea of brown Gregg County uniforms that were sitting waiting on me to wake up and go to school, I was 10 then, now I’m 31 and not a day goes by that I don’t think about it. I miss you so damn much, but I am glad you aren’t here to see what this country has fallen to. I’m still working in the oilfield, but need a special favor if it’s not too much. Will you please watch over the boys and my wife while I’m out and working. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever realize. I love you old man.

Love Cort
