Enjoyed knowing you, Mr. Scott! You were (and still are) a great guy and one of the 'greatest generation,' so thanks for that!

Dearest Daddy, I was reminded of the words at your military funeral ... "This flag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for your loved one’s honorable and faithful service." It ripped me apart the day it was done, and still rips me to tears now .... i miss you SO much ....

Dearest Daddy, I haven't written lately, but not because I haven't been thinking of you. Somehow I know that where ever you are you can see what happens in my life. I've signed on for a free trial of Ancestry dot com .. and WOW! I'm finding more information on your family tree!!! I wish you and I had done this a long time ago, you would have had such fun with it.

The kids are doing well, and the grandbabies thriving ... i miss seeing them more often, but for now this will have to do, I guess. I hope you're looking after the critters i send you, including the goose that I killed this week. I was devastated. He turned and went back across the street after he was safe, and I hit him. I was a mess after that.

The garden is a mess, I haven't weeded it. I am about decided to dig it all up in the fall, roto till it after I remove the bulbs, and replant it ...

I love you, and miss you, but I sense that you're with me. I stumbled upon a card you gave me that last summer we had together, and i sat there and bawled reading it. I treasure it and all the cards you've given me over the years.

I love you so,

Dearest Daddy, today is your 95th birthday. The lily of the valley isn't blooming yet, but all the tulips you've planted are. I picked a bunch to bring into the bedroom with me. You'd love the garden now, it's run wild with violets ...

We went to Wiltse's on Thursday night, and had birthday dinner with FrJ. I got a cake, and had "Birthdays are meant to be shared" on it. Silly cake decorator put an apostrophe in Birthdays. I wiped it off.

FrJ keeps in touch with Bill, which is a good thing. Makes me glad. You probably wouldn't like the music, but Bill's band is doing well. and he loves his job at the museum.

Sometimes I think you're here with me, and I just can't see you. Maybe I'm nuts. It's scary being without you. I try to think what you would do, or say, given certain circumstances, I just really miss being able to talk things through with you. I still talk to you. I talk to you in the Buick, or in the garden ... and in my bedroom late at night when the house is asleep. I also find my self saying and doing more and more of your mannerisms. I even got mad this week and threw my phone across the room!

The girls are well, the babies are growing up fast ...

Oh Daddy, I miss you so ...

Dearest Daddy,
For some silly reason, this didn't get saved the day I wrote it to you. SO, I'm reposting it now ...

I've about finished Dr. R's quilt, and might be making one for Luke as well. He misses you too.

"At 3:19 today, it will have been 525,600 minutes. How do you measure, measure a life? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, In cups of coffee, In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife; How do you measure the life of a man? In truths that he learned, Or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, Or the way that he died. Tho' the story never ends, Let's celebrate. Remember a year in the life of a man. Remember the love! You know that love is a gift from up above, Share love, give love spread love, Measure your life in love. Godspeed on your journey, Daddy. I will remember. Always. "

I love you so ...

Dearest Daddy, it's been 11 months, 11 days, and I still miss you as bad as the first day, sometimes more. Today we signed up as volunteers at the hospital ... it was Dennis' idea, so a good thing. i'll get myself into their newsletter production sooner or later, I'm sure. There was a gleam in the eye of the woman we report to ...

Finally got snow. When we took down the Christmas decorations, Sebastian had a panic attack ... looking at it from his point of view, there were boxes, chaos, furniture moved, and he got very very clingy ... he seems better now. Laura sent a video of Joshua saying his prayers ... so sweet. She's a good mama. We might have a buyer for the cedar lake house, I hope so. I need to be out from under that.

i broke out your plaid shirt and slept in it the other night ... I miss you so ...

The holidays are over, and though you were missing, you were still a very big part of them. I gifted Heather with your Easter egg, Laura with the kneeling Santa, and Bill with the eagle you had on your TV. The girls wore their bracelets, it's time for new charms for them for their birthdays. There is no day go by that I don't think about you, talk about you, miss you. 2010 was a year of adjustments, and it was difficult. It is now 2011, time for a new page to write on. My goal for this year is to put my book together, and to further my quilt business.

The kids sent us gas money, so we went to Allentown for Christmas. It was noisy, and fun, having Christmas morning at Laura's, all of us in our pajamas ...

While I was at Heather's house, taking a nap in the living room with Shermie, there came a rustling behind the Christmas tree, and then an ornament fell on the floor! No one was there! I told Karl and Heather about it. Apparently Karl's dad "visits" from time to time and does silly things. He always comes in October though. Perhaps it was you?! I hope so. If something happens here, I'll know it is you.

i love you so ...

Dearest Daddy ... holidays are coming, and I am dreading them. They will be almost unbearable with you not here. Too many things are changing. "Alf" is no longer at the storefront, as the owner retired; the Buick dealer where you had the car serviced has closed its doors. Sebastian is better, but he still cries at night sometimes. I know how he feels ... i miss you so much. Someone commented that there was nothing to do in Oscoda. A bunch of us listed why it's better here than in big cities. I know you took Oscoda by storm ... it's not the same without you. i love you so...

Dearest Daddy, We cleaned out the storage facility room and brought everything home. Among the boxes was a "wardrobe" box from Penske .. and inside was your leather Bomber jacket, other jackets and sweaters ... Bill took the leather jacket, and I pounced on the sweaters. I don't feel so silly when I see Mary still wearing Dad T's jacket. I was so mad when I finally had to wash the sweater, because it had still smelled like you ... now it smells like fabric softener ...

Dearest Daddy .... the weather is turning colder. It was only in the 60s today ... got my flu shot friday, came down with flu on saturday. Can't win. You wouldn't be happy with the new television prime time lineup, i'm still trying to make sense of it all. the craft shows are heating up for the fall, and everyone wants me to be sure to bring you ... Bunyan Festival was a flop ... Fr. Ken called, asked about Bill as usual ... I miss you so much. You drove me nuts often, but I'd take that in a heartbeat to have you back. I love you ...
