Jes, Spent the afternoon of March 25th with the guy's at Plainfield drinking and reminiscing. Then I sent the photo's of us to your dad so that he would know we do not forget. It was a cold and miserable day, but the Jesse stories kept us warm with laughter. Savannah is doing great at Penn State and I know you are looking on with pride. Jacob is finishing high school and also doing well. We miss those hugs every day. Love you son
