I don't have any idea why I thought of you after all these many, many years, but I did today. And with the internet, you can find anything. I found you.....I remember all the Christmas's at your moma's house and in the country at Grandpa & Grandma's. You and I would go out and climb around and play in their barn for hours. I remember searching for the wild kittens that were always around there too. Feeding the chickens and collecting all the eggs, even the ones hidden in the garage. You are a part of my memories and will always be there. It sounds like you had a wonderfully happy life with your sisters taking care of you for all this time. And yes, you are now there with all of those that have past before you. Now you can play your guitar for them too.
Love, Karen

Give grandma and my dad hugs and kisses and let them know how much we miss them and always will - I know they will be there with you in a better place.
