Dear Dad,

I miss you every day. You would be happy to know that after
Christopher, we were blessed to have another son, Sam.
They have grown up to be wonderful young men.  You would have
loved them so much.

Your influence on me has been major, as my main loves like
yours were,  are art and writing.  I feel that I owe you so much.
I too love being near water, and in the countryside, and
like it did for you, that has inspired my work, and
been a pleasure for my family.

Love you,
