All of you are my Best Ever Children!
My father wasn’t a man to show his feelings. That’s the way he was raised. I only got to say ‘I Love You” about 2 or 3 times in our relationship. I never got to say I Love You before he died. I know he was proud of me by the way he treated me!
I don’t want to carry that on to my children!
Let me tell you how much you all mean to me:
My Best Ever 3 Sons:
Each of you is successful in your professions, success fathers, success husbands, and of all wonderful sons!
Let me see if I can get this straight:
When I was sick and in the ICU in an induced coma and almost died in 2012:
Andrew came and helped me and Mom get out of the hospital and over to Paul Kuzma’s house because our house was being sold and we were in the middle of moving to San Antonio.
Matthew came and guided the movers to empty our house and drive Mom’s car to San Antonio.
David came and got Me, Mom, the cats in our car and he drove us to San Antonio.
All 3 of you were there when we needed you! I can’t find the words to tell you three how much that meant and means to me even today!!
My 3 Best Ever Daughters-in-Law:
Diana, Alisha, Jennifer, all have been great to my sons and your wonderful children! I know we don’t see eye to eye many times but you have made my sons very happy! You all have strong marriages.
All 3 of you have been there when needed by us all! I can’t find the words to tell you three how much that meant and means to me even today!!
Last here, but my first in my heart: My Daughter Dana
We don’t see eye to eye most times. But you also have been extremely successful. You now are embarking on a new position as HR Manager. I know you will do fantastic. You have been and are a great mother! You were and are my first and there are no words to say and show how deeply I love you!
I am a very lucky man!
I have a magnificent wife, your Mom, who has made my life unbelievable these 50 years! She has stuck by my side truly through thick and thin, in sickness and in health!
You all, I love you all so much and so proud of you all that I ache to find the sufficient words to describe my feelings! You have given us the privilege of 15 grand children!
I needed to take this time to let all of you know my feelings because I didn’t want to be all like my father although I loved him so much and in his way, was great! He taught me so much that school never teaches you. I know he died proud of me.
I am not dying but needs to take this time you let you know what a great family we have.
