Soon a year now you have gone, still so much more than a memory, so dear, and so missed. We remember you now and you will always be remembered, living on in our hearts.

So once again, I saw a plane, and I still see you, your smile, beckoning that little "airplane" dog frantically running after us once again on the runway, "Aw common then", as you scoop him up and into the plane. You shove in that throttle, the engine roars to life, the little plane scooting down the runway. You pull back on the stick and even now I hear you say as you always say, "Get on up there now", and we are once again in flight!

Pull back on the stick CW, "Get on up there", as I know you are now and forever more....

FLYING HIGH WITH JESUS !!!

I love you and miss you, your "other son", -Eddie-
