Dad……I know you don’t relish turning 87 and I can hardly believe the number myself.
This is you leading the pack in Yosemite. We always called you the Mountain Goat…….Thank you for handing down to me a wonderful legacy of loving nature and animals and a deep respect for all living things.
I hope the cake got there in one piece, I thought 87 deserved a homemade cake from me however it looks when it gets there.
Thank you for all the laughter we have shared and are still sharing. One of the most important things you and Mom have mastered is to never forget how to laugh no matter what life throws your way.
And it has thrown you quite a bit over the years.
Thank you for all your calls and letters……I always love seeing those white oblong envelopes in the mail. You should have a new book on your Kindle as soon as you can get to the library to download it from it’s place out in the wireless world. It is hovering there waiting for you.
When I saw the title, I couldn’t resist. Please let me know how you like it.
I wish you God’s richest blessings and peace for tomorrow. I will call, because I want to hear your voice on your special day.
I love you……Your daughter.
As always, right behind you on the trail.
