Who knew our lives would change so quickly 15 years ago….. I thought we would grow old together. Kick the kids out, retire and spoil our grandchildren. I miss you everyday! All of the kids are doing great and you have 5 grandchildren. Although, we all know that Mel was actually your practice granddaughter ❤️ Life goes on and time does help but the wound never heals. I miss our early morning crossword puzzles, Friday night pizza with the neighbors and your request for brownies on Sunday night while watching the Colts! I love you always
