HHello John, Happy Thanksgiving, I know this was one of your favorite holidays, lots of family, friends, and laughter. Of course the mashed potatoes, scalloped corn and turkey were pretty good too! Ted and Edna's turkey, pies etc were all so good and lots of fun, always a challenge to see if we had enough mashed potatoes. I remember the first Thanksgiving we had together in Pittsburgh, Pa out at the base. It was the first time I had met Harvey and Ginny Colsinger from Georgia, what a couple, I think they had five kids, Mary lou and Glen Elrod and the guy from down south, I only knew
his name as Hanks, he always wanted country music not the horn blowned music. What characters!!!! So what would you be doing today if you were here in body? I bet watching the news and eating too much, I misws you so much John, for one time in my life it seems I have time to think and reflect on our time together, we really did okay, ups and downs but still a good life. I hope you are looking down on all of us and figuring out what to do when I get there. I love you and always will and I am profoundly grateful for having our time together, your wife Jeri (by the way a belated Happy Birthday) 80 years young!!!!!
