Leia and Grandad Alan - May 2003
I wish I could talk to my Dad today. So much has happened in our lives since he left us. Oliver joined us and how he would have loved little Oliver. We have moved twice. Dad would have enjoyed Colorado Springs immensely. He was a lover of the great outdoors and God's creations.
But most of all I'd just like to talk. To tell him how much I miss him and think about him. Two years have passed and I still feel the pain of it all. I could confide in him, ask him for advice. He was loving, kind, gentle, and a leader. I would thank him again for the beautiful art work he gave me, the appreciation of books he taught me, and the example he was to me of so many excellent qualities.
So just in case you can understand my heart at all today Dad. I love you so much.
