I wish you didn't have to go. I'll miss taking you shopping and fixing supper for us every day. It's going to be hard coming home and your not there for me to stop in to see what you did today while I was at work. You would tell me what happen on the afternoon soaps. Now your with Mom Dad Birdie Dave and Don. You can tell them how things are. Love and miss you. We will all meet again. Rest now.
