Dear Steve,
Another Wedding Anniversary come and gone...Another Christmas, too. You’re loved and missed every day.
I know you’re watching out for us from above but the hole in our family is palpable. We talk about you all the time. Wyatt knows you through memories I share with him and photos he looks at all the time. He’s the true miracle we both were praying and trying for before your murder and he is growing up so fast. Every year it becomes harder for him because he realizes how much he’s missing without you here. Please continue to surround us with your love and protection.
You’re missed, loved and thought of today, tomorrow and always....

Dana Blair
