    Bob,

    Your two "special" boxes are destined for shipment by Wednesday. Within the package will be the letter you requested.

    Many thanks for all your efforts, my friend...

    Tight lines, and stay off that foot!!!

    Bob,

    Your package is away, with the estimated arrival to be on Friday. Please let me know when it arrives...

    I also enclosed the requested note, and if you have any questions regarding which side is which-- doubtful as it might be --let me know, old friend...

    Tight lines always, Bob...

    Emily, Lauren and Laramie's earthly bodies are gone but their heavenly spirit bodies are alive and well. From my spirit to theirs--Merry Christmas!

    Jerry started this thread long before I became a member here, after reading each post on this thread I know I made a very wise choice.

    Jerry, I'm sending you a pm.
    The only thing human kind ever learned through history, is that through history, human kind has learned nothing.

    Guys,

    There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about the two daughters lost to us over the last decade, or those kids who once were "my kids" that now dwell in a place that is without pain or suffering. I have to continue believing in that premise, as the alternative isn't within me to consider.

    Do I miss them all? Every single hour of every day. And, I wish that I could tell you that time makes the losses easier to bear. But, I can't. All that I can say with any sort of certainty whatsoever is that there eventually comes a point when the hole in the pit of your gut is diminished a bit, then pushed aside by the memories that come to live on in your heart, especially at this time of year.

    And, has been a tradition of sorts with my daughter Jesse and me, we will share the tying desk this evening-- and every night until she heads back to school next month --and talk about whatever comes to mind. We will remember those we miss, particularly on nights like this, and those who touched our lives in more ways than I can count. And, we will tie some flies, much the same as "my girls" and all of "my kids" have done over the years.

    But, more than that, we will celebrate those who've impacted us most, be it by tying one of their favorite patterns or recalling moments that stood out as special for whatever reason. Those recollections will serve as gentle reminders to me and mine-- and those closest to us --that for a life to be lived well, it must be lived. Therein lies the secret to it all...

    Have a great holiday, my friends...
