My dearest Brian. So much hate and sadness going on in the world right now. I wish you were here. The girls are good... Madeline got braces and has been eating mashed potatoes for 3 days and Paige is breezing through second semester at MU grad school, but of course I know you know all of that. Please watch over my dad and Darlene. I love you. I miss you. Always.
