Well sweetie... its time for another Christmas letter to you. I promised I would keep you up to date on your birthday and your favorite holiday, Christmas.
If your friends are correct, you can see this and you're watching over me all the time...me, I just think your positive energy is floating thru the universe effecting all the people who were close to you. It certainly must have had an effect on our son, he has been working so hard and takes such good care of his family.
Yes, Jason seems to have settle down very nicely and is a super father. He, along with Lisa, are raising two wonderful grandkids for you.
Except for the old geezer, you have a great looking family.
Riley continues to get awards, upon awards for his outstanding school work and has a wonderful, if slightly (lawyer like) argumentative personality.
This photo pretty much puts it in a nut shell, KMoon is unabashedly so interesting to be around. I was lucky enough to be with the kids for a month in November and it was one of the greatest times of my life.
KMoon is a sparkling star to go with her beautiful personality.
Ashley is also very smart and ahead in school, the smart gene must of come from the female grannies. Here she is with her first real pet...milktoast.
I had help in November taking care of the kids, Carla was so helpful in guiding me, while helping me care for both children...I would of been lost without her.
In September I told you about Carla, well we are still together and enjoying life. Sometimes I think you nudged me toward her somehow and while she is no replacement for you, she has such an awesome personality, a positive outlook and much more trusting than myself. I'm not sure how I keep getting so lucky as to have had such wonderful people around me since the age of 23...you'd think with my view of life, I'd be surrounded by a slue of pessimists.
When I found the house of our dreams outside of Colville, WA., after approximately three years on the road, you made me promise that if we bought the house, we would still RV part of the year.
I kept that promise to you and am still going to keep traveling, whenever possible throughout the year.
I still have fond memories of bringing you home from Seattle in the motorhome, just weeks before you passed...you loved that trip as much as any we have had.
Another promise you made me swear to, besides traveling, keeping the trust for the kids and not ending up like my dad (alone), was to lose weight. Jeez you made me promise a lot, girl! Well I did lose my excess weight but I also picked up a bad habit that you made me quit years earlier...cigars. Well, you never made me swear not too so don't be pissed off if you are looking down here. haha
Merry 2016 Christmas sweetie, not a day goes by that I don't think of you or thank my lucky stars you were in my life, as long as you were.
