My thoughts and prayers are with you and all your families. Living up the river is a beautiful thing, I'm sure you all are aware of that and it is obvious how much your Dad loved it too. Take Care.

I remember when we went sturgeon fishing on the columbia river. I had caught a two foot seven inch sturgeon. I couldnt figure out how to reel the fish in with my pole, so you helped me reel it in by grabbing the line and pulling it in with our hands.. I still have that picture of me holding it with the huge boat in the background... You always took me hunting and fishing and taught me so many things... I know when I left I stayed away for awhile and for that I'm sorry.. I still remember years later when I stopped by just to say hi and you were home... We drank a beer together and enjoyed each others company... I miss you every day!! I wish you were here to see that because of you I'm a better person.. I will always love you and call you my dad, because every since I was little you have been.. I'm sorry I wasnt there after you found out you were sick but, I didnt know.. I pray you're looking down on me and are proud!! I love you !!!
