I know that you and Mom are enjoying the great beyond and having lemonade under a shade tree, but I felt obliged to tell you some news.
The child of mine that I named after you has discovered the khaki shirts you left behind that I have saved for 17 years. She swears she will wear nothing else. She loves the color and the tailored fit. She tried on your boots but she hasn't quite grown in to them yet.
You and Mom would be proud, as she has become quite the young lady. Say Hello to George Washington for me.
Your loving son,
