Happy Birthday, Daddy.
At some point today I will be able to look toward the Heavens and say that with a smile. Right now I can only say it through the tears. I am so sad. I just miss you so much. Aunt Carol is doing surprisingly well. I told her I wasn't going to wish her a "happy" birthday..it seems somewhat trite at this point..but that I love her and am thinking of her. Mom is okay. She bought you a nice Eagle statue that holds a flag before you passed..it was at Grams' house. We're going to place that in the front lawn today. And we're going to dinner at one of your favorite restaurants. The Eagle is gorgeous. You would've loved it.
