My Dearest John,

I cherish my memories of you, they were truly some of the best moments of my life. Some of my greatest moments as a child was coming out to your farm every summer to be with you and your family. You turned this city girl into a farmers apprentice and I loved every second of it. Riding on that tractor with you and helping deliver calves gave me so much joy. Every summer I could be a country kid and forget about the rough an tough city I was from. Not only did I learn about farming but I got to see what real love from a dad was by watching you be there for your family . Your home was always full of love and a safe fun place for me to retreat to when school was out. Thank you for those memories. My heart is with you always. Your eternal Fresh Air Girl Meshelle.... I love you!
