11 years to the day and it still seems like yesterday. I think about you and your girls often as well as the conversation we had the night prior about getting to go deer hunting with our dads. Man were you ever excited to be able to do that again after missing it for so many years due to your service in the military and academy. Things have definitely changed around here and I am sure you are up there shaking your head; however, the one thing that never changes is you are still in our hearts and on our mind.

I love you brother!
