Hey Dad, well we finally have a back fence. We had it installed for the giant beast of a dog we have. You would have liked Benji I think. The guys were worried about getting wood dust in my house and mentioned it to Steve. He told them not to worry I would surely welcome it. And I did, there is a pile currently on the bottom of my boots. I forgot how much I miss the sound of the saw going, or a hammer. Or the sawdust, silly right? You would like this fence, it's actually built correctly. The one guy welcomed a cup of coffee when I offered it. I could hear you in my head saying "ya know Michelle he would probably enjoy a cup of coffee" just like you did when you were working on anything, especially on a chilly fall day. Steve of coursed bragged to the guy about the tables and fireplace. I told him you would have built the fence if you were still here. I miss you. I miss you sawdust and your rough hard working hands, your ticklish mustache, your laugh, your smile and man your hugs. Kelsye talks about you all the time. You would be so proud of her. She played baseball this season, and made the swim team and is such a fantastic reader. She loves to learn about everything and anything. You would be proud of hailey too. She is such a whip, she is a strong girl in spirit and strength and goes for what she's after. She is still a book worm too. I like to think you see everything they do. They tell me you watch them everyday and that your always around. I sure hope so. Love you so much <3 and miss you so much too.

So I thought you would find this interesting. I defiantly have inherited your cracked fingers problem. It's so early in the season but my hands are dry and have been cracking like mad...Now I understand your pain, remember when I used to rub lotion on your hands at night when I was little? I felt so bad your hands were always so dry. I want to thank you for working all those cold days outside for years, putting food on the table, cloths on our backs and a roof over our head. You were a very hard worker, out in the sun on those hot nasty days. I will never forget all you have done for me ever. It was cute today at the foodstore, the man in front of me was getting a few different chocolate bars. I mentioned how I was always so good the entire time in the store avoiding chocolate until I came up to the line. He said oh they are for the people at home. I laughed and said that was great that you used to bring me home a candy bar every time you went to wawa. I miss that. You always always put us first and I am so blessed to have had such a great compassionate dad and I am also blessed my girls will remember you. Thanks Daddy, love you <3

Hey Dad. Guess what they now make? V-8 with pepper! Go figure now they do after all the years of you trying to shake pepper into yours :) thought that would make you laugh. It's the little things that bring up some great memories of you :) it still is hard to remember your not here. I find all sorts of stuff to tell you and I can't...I love you.

Hey Dad! I bought myself a new flannel and man would you have looked good in it. It's orange, I know not really your color but it would have looked great on you :) Hailey and Kelsye are both swimming now. You would be so proud of their dedication and waking up at 5:30. Kelsye is also doing baseball, she took her first throw to the face today. The coaches said they thought she was so brave because she surprised them by not screaming and crying :) I mean she cried but I guess they thought it would be worse. She is actually enjoying it so hopefully it hasn't deterred her. I told her to tell everyone tomorrow that she won the fight :) Well Dad I love you and miss you. Life isn't the same without you :( love ya.

Hey pop. So here i am in the garage breaking down an old high chair. Have it all apart and sanded and bow back together. I counter sank the old screws that was added long before me but cleaned it up just from watching you over the years. So i used my wood putty filler to fill the holes because i dont have the exact wood to make the plugs and an old thoight came across me that i remember you once saying. I took my sand dust and mixed it with my glue and bam instant wood filler that matches the wood color. What stinks is that i picked these things up in only short burst because i was gone all the time. Some of me regrets being gone all those years but it defined me. Just hate thinking of what we might have gotten ourselves into if i was around all those years. Anyway i try my best to remember stuff you told me when doinv my projects. I just wish you were here to do them with me. Love you buddy. Hope your doing well.

Hey pop. Think of you everyday still. Well the downstairs is finally finished. Wish you were here to see it but again i hope your standing over my shoulder and you can see it anyway. I had such a great time with you building everything. Man we had some really hard laughs and i loved being with you. I wish that project never ended. Anyway its all finished. Took a while but everyday i got closer everyday i thought i wish you were here with me to finish it. Next project is another bathroom and a shed. Miss you buddy. Love you. Vayda says whoot whoot. I sometimes think maybe you visit her because she talks about poppop out of nowhere. I hope she never stops.

Miss you Dad <3 it still feels weird to not have you around for everything. I miss talking to you about our shows. I miss your witty comments and you would laugh to know that I occasionally will watch a commercial since you always said I missed a lot of good ones because I recorded everything. I thank you every day for helping me be a patient person. Well as patient as I can get, I still have that teensy weensy spark of anger towards things that don't work, kinda like you and that chainsaw of yours :). I love you and miss you bunches wish you were here <3
