Hey Erika,
It's your dad here...
Lee & Mom are on a big boat
and I'm at home with a
very sad <underlined> dog.
Today is Sunday and
it looks like it's going to
Be a busy week.
I really <underlined> hope all is
well up there and you
are having a great <underlined> time!
I cleaned the garage
today. Anywho…
Haven't written
anything by hand that
was this long in a
while, very weird.
This is a great chance
for me to tell you how
proud I am of you
and how much I appreciate
you doing your best and
staying out of trouble.
We are very, very
fortunate and blessed
that we have such a
great family and we
have the ability to
afford some neat
experiences for you.
I love you so <underlined> much and
miss and worry about
you when you are
gone.
You will always be my
little
peanut.
Love,
Dad
