My Dearest Morgan,
Time has gone by but it has not healed. I miss you terribly. I catch myself at times looking over to see you only to be hit with the harsh reality that you are no longer here. This is my first of many Thanksgivings without you. Lasst Christmas was a blur this one everone already knows it has been ruined forever. Even Chloe feels the same as do Bobby and Debbie. Debbie at times takes this very hard. We have talked late at night sometimes and she brings up a memory and is always to be quick and tell me she is sorry for bringing it up I guess she figures it will only bring more pain. I tell her it is good to remember and to talk and laugh about times that come to mind. After all you live in our hearts and our memories. I have not brought myself to go back over the video CDs taht were made. I finally got the missing pictures that I wanted to go through when I made you Celebration of Life DVD.
Bobby and Nikki got married in June. They lost the baby a few days before your Celebration of Life. The good news is that she is now expecting they sent me an ultrasound picture with a note not conceived in Horseshoe but the week before. Jennifer and Andy finally tied the know after nine years and that is when Mom learned Nikki was pregnant. Mary says she has gotten past the time when she lost the other baby so keep your fingers crossed.
Boy are Kelly and Chloe growing. They are still the best of cousins and still doing they inpromt to plays for the delight of everyone.
I write in a journel from time to time it helps just as this is doing. I am keeping busy as usual. Will be starting a new job tomorrow and guess what it is something we did about 20 years ago. I am going to pick pine cones to help replensh the forest. The same family still runs the business only it is the daughter and her husband running it. It runs from November to March and can only go where they are clearing timber which is not very much these days.I am going to try and attach two family photos of your surprise 75th birthday.
I love and miss you.
With all my love forever,
