What a thoughtful post, Erin. That brought back a lot of memories; it felt good to remember those things. We have the best dad, ever, huh! I have the best brothers and sisters, too. I love our family. I love you so much. Don't ever leave! I really miss living by you on campus. Those were really good days.

Wow Sweetie! Words can't express any sort of response to what you have said. All I can say is that I love you with all my heart. Mom and I have been blessed with the most wonderful kids any person could ever hope for in eternity. Truly you kids are the greatest gift a parent could hope for, dream for, or even live this life for. What you have said is very touching and I hope someday to live up to this person you have just described. I love you dear Erin Eileen!
