Nearly a year now Grandpa...It still hurts..I still cry..a lot. God I miss you so so much.we are visiting everyone in AZ next week. I'm scared to go...I don't want to cry in from of my boys the whole time. how strange it will feel without you there. I wish it would stop hurting so much. I wish I could hug you again.you have the best warm hugs ever, I think I got that from you. I wish you could come back and when I got there next week, that you are there, in your seat..with that smile ..that smile I love so much. you know I'm going to look..I'll probably stare..hoping you are really there and I can trip over your cane trying to give you a hug again.

Hi Dad,
I won one yesterday and wanted to tell you the details of the trial. It was something and know it would have put a smile on your face. I kept on thinking how great it would be to talk to you. But I cannot. I can imagine what you would say. Or are you really letting me know in my mind. I sure miss you !

I will miss Ralph. Truly a man amongst men. He raised a hell of a family that I know he was very proud of. I hadnt seen him in close to 30 years...but can't forget his warm and friendly welcomes to the cave creek house for Dan and his college buddies...of course the next morning, no matter what time you got in the night before, Elba and Ralph had chores for the boys to do. Dan is a lucky man to have had such great examples of humanity to learn from....

Today, I woke up again thinking of my dad. I wrote on facebook accidentally. I was lamenting how different it is to walk in this world without dad. I remember was I was shot in the leg down at the creek, my dad came to get me. Again, when I broke my other leg racing, he picked me up from the hospital. Always, he encourage me to shake it off and "Go get em". I miss that. Whether it was face to face, or on the other end of the phone line, he was there for me and for all of us. Now I ask the Lord for the opportunity to talk to him again. I think I heard him this morning in my slumber as I pray to God for faith.
