Papa-

It’s been a little over a year and I miss you and Mimi. You were both SO much like parents to me. When I was about 4-6 yrs old you would give me horseback rides by crawling around on the living room floor while you and Mimi watched the nightly news with Peter Jennings or Tim Brokaw. Every single time I hear the music for NBC news, it’s like I’m instantly back at your house as a child with no cares in the world. I remember the “water hump” slide as a little bitty girl in the kitchen on Wofford. I wish I could go back. Life isn’t what I thought it would be- especially without you and Mimi. Give her a hug and kiss for me please. Know that neither of you will ever ever be forgotten, and thank you both for loving me until your last breaths.
