37 years ago… 37 years. I wonder what you would look like. If you would still be drinking Coors, smoking Marlboros, telling jokes, fixing up properties. You ought to see the great injustice people are doing to the vintage homes now days. Totally ruined the vintage, beautiful look in vintage. Too many folks think they are designers and interior designers. It is such a shame. Good taste just does not exist any longer and people have lost it… It is popular to have babies with anyone you want and not be married….Marriage is not even factor.

Females want to be males, males want to be females, and kindergartner teachers are making it their business instead of placing their pupils in the winning circle of creative thinking.

Corporate America is ruining the country, Democrats are demoralizing everyone and everything. Men do not hold the door for females, females have tattoos all over their bodies like men. Men are wearing female hair buns and call it a “ man bun’”. LMAO

People have beautiful kitchens with all brand new appliances and eat take out all the time. Their stoves look brand new year after year for two reasons, they never used it and buy a new one every year. People go grocery shopping, come home put the groceries away then, go get take out. LOL Country music went right out the door with marriage.

I have so many memories, so many things I would love to talk twith you, so many jokes to share. Oh, yeah, no one tells jokes any more! I can’t believe it! No jokes. Can you imagine that.

I imagine that we are sitting on your patio, drinking beer, telling jokes, and just having a good old time. I sure do miss you. The day you left this earth is the day my heart split in half. Broken. Life went on, 37 years of tears, missing you tremendously.

I hate the month of August… I hate the way you left our lives…
I hate not being able to be with my best friend… The only man who was the only Father I ever had… You are very important to me and always will be…

Your step-daughter,
