Hi Craig….first and foremost Happy Birthday! Today you turned 15 years old and I can honestly hardly believe it as it really does seem like just yesterday when your Mom and I took you home from Reston Hospital, tapping the brakes the entire way, I do not think we broker 25 MPH on the entire ride back home.
You are going into High School in the fall and I have so many things I want to tell you, share with you and protect you from. I am here for you Craig no mater how big or small the challenge. I will keep asking your Mom if you want to talk, but please know I am here for you when you need me. Mom has my phone number, address and email address. I am so proud of you for acing all of your classes this past year – A’s across the board – So very proud of you. Keep up the hard work, it will all pay off. I miss you Craig, I love you with all my heart and I pray each day, multiple times a day, that one day we will get the chance to talk in person (looking at a sunset like this one) and establish a relationship
