I read this today. It is almost New Years and this is as good a resolution as you can find.

"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is thing called Facebook and I find that a lot of the stuff I used to write to you I just put on Facebook. That bothers me a little bit. I find I write to you less and what I do write is the sad stuff not the happy updates about Mom, Jack and Joe.

Here is a quote I put on my Facebook page where they give you space to put your favorite quote.
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."
Groucho Marx

I love this Groucho quote, and I love that you shared it with your son. I also lost a son named Henry, and have posted my letters to him here:

Your Henry is a beautiful boy, and I am very sorry that he was taken from you. Thank you for sharing.
