Good evening! This is Karen doing this evening’s post as it is one that is very special to me. Last week while my children were visiting their friend Leslie, she helped them with some special letters for their father. They both did a beautiful job on these letters and I wanted to share them with everyone. Jaxson’s is phonically spelled and is much cooler on paper in his handwriting, but I don’t know if everyone could understand it without translation. I tried to keep it as close as possible, but did make some spelling corrections. Here’s Jaxson’s letter (with the translation below), click on the photos to enlarge:
You are a grate Dad! and I remember when you took me to Outback (steakhouse) and they have my favorite bread and they have rootbeer. I know you will feel better in heaven and I will miss you so so much in heaven. and I want you to know I love you in heaven.
Here’s Brenden’s letter:
To Dad, From Brenden
I love you Dad for playing good guys and bad guys with me. Your the greatest dad ever! I’ll miss you.
They each gave them t0 Chris and said, “these are for you to take to heaven.” So Chris has asked me to put the letters in his casket should he pass away. There are pictures they both made to go with the letters. Jaxson’s is on the backside of his letter:
The letters are so sincere and seem to simplify everything everyone else is thinking and feeling. I just wanted to share them with everyone as I know the boys are in everyone’s thoughts right now. I’m so proud of them. The letters are hanging in Chris’s room if you visit him.
On another note, Chris had an okay day. He was up quite a bit last night so he did sleep a lot today. He did take a walk this afternoon. Tonight he’s having some “mommy and me” time as his mother is on the night shift along with his step-father, Rick.
Have a wonderful evening,
