Oh, where do I start? It certainly does not get too much easier. Today, Saturday, January 26, 2019, marks two years since your beautiful soul left your body. Just typing this is so much harder than I thought it would be. There are not very many days when you do not cross my mind. I, and our family also, miss you so much! I know you are watching over all of us forever, and always!
I cannot say that there are not things that I would have wished I could have asked you about when you were still in good health. I was I guess too young still at that time to be able to ask you what it was like for you when you fought for our country, or what it was like when you were just a little boy. Nona, in recent time, did tell me about how you guys moved around a lot when you worked. She has told me more about what you and her life was like, and I am eternally grateful for that!
Hunting has not been too much different. It is a little bit though without you coming with Dad and me on some of the Dove hunts. Unfortunately, this year may be the first dove opener I will miss since starting to hunt. Hunting has been a bit harder for me recently Pawpaw, because of I am assuming the foot surgery I had. It is the only thing I can think of that would have caused some of the issues I have been having with hunting and other things in general. Not to worry though, we will find a resolution I am sure!
I also moved up to Utah this year, to attend Utah Valley University, and I really like it so far! I bet you'd like it here too! I have to take the bus between my classes but it is nice to be able to look at the mountains and nature around me while I wait for the bus! I think I have caught you up to speed now Pawpaw, but if I missed some things I do apologize!
I miss you so much, and love you so so much! I wish I could give you one more big hug, but I am sure I will be able to one day! Until then, here is to you Pawpaw! I hope you're having all the High Balls you can in heaven! I will always carry you with me in my heart wherever I go, I promise! I love you!
