I remember well, how you and Bob used to sit at the picnic table in our garage for hours, solving the problems of the world, when you visited Katherine in Texas. You two struck up a friendship and got along so well. On another visit, you brought me a swing, that you had made and surprised me with it, I was in shock that you were so kind. Then, you and Bob decided to build a 4X4 frame and hang the swing, while I was at work. The two of you never had a second thought about digging two holes for the posts. In the process, you two cut the phone and internet lines for us and our next-door neighbors. It took three days to get the lines repaired, but the swing was worth being without television for three days. Bob's been gone almost seven years, I hope the two of you cross paths again and can sit and talk together for awhile. I know that your family will miss you dearly. Thank you for the wonderful memories and the swing.
