My dearest, it is so hard to believe you've been gone 22 yrs. It still seems like yesterday. I hate having my phone ring at night, it's never good news. Still finding those pennies and the family of Cardinals live in the same bushes. I'm glad we still have a connection and you will be glad to know I finally retired. I wish you could hold our miracle grandson Matty. He is my sunshine,my only sunshine...
