Dad I miss a lot right now. I have an amazing wife, a little girl and boy. I know you would have loved this family of mine. All of us kids are doing good and creating good lives for ourselves. As you know I am a Deputy now and strive to live and work as you taught me too. I’m also a PFC in the Army National Guard (I know it’s the army). I can only image the wisecracks I would be getting from you if you were here right now. Tell Thomas hello for me and I will see you both some day. I love you dad.
