Hi Emma! There's a lot going on right now...most of it dealing with health issues. Getting old is a bummer. Mom is on the sofa in a swoon because of a sinus infection, and I'm busy trying to make pottery while feeling weak and depressed. If only my disability case would have a positive outcome. This week marks the one year anniversary of your elopement. Mom and I have been thinking of you a lot!

Hi Emma... Mom and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary. This is the first one we had without you for 23 years, and your mom took that especially hard. You have been on our hearts a lot lately.It seems that your death is becoming harder to deal with as time goes on. Most people seem to think that time makes it easier, but that's not true for us.Love,Daddy

Emily is two today. I'll never forget the early morning when you and I drove down to Meridian to wait for her arrival. I'm glad that Emily got to meet her Aunt Emma. And I'm glad that you got to sing her Happy Birthday at least one time.

Our hearts are really "Treasure Boxes" where we keep the ones we love. Daughters and sisters are treasures we hold dear.

I am reading a hauntingly, beautiful book called The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. It's based on Russian folktales about a childless couple who build a little girl of snow who then comes to life. There are many versions of the story, none of which end happily. I am hoping against hope that Eowyn Ivey finds a way to bring hope at the end.So far, a homesteading couple who've lost a child before heading out West have built a snow-girl. Suddenly, the snowgirl is melted and they spy a little girl wearing the articles of clothing they had put on the snowgirl running around the woods near their home, with a red fox always in the distance. I don't want to say any more, because I want to encourage the reading of the book and don't want to give any spoilers. I am half-way through, and I tell you, this book will affect you in imaginable ways.This afternoon, while reading, I began to reflect on Emma, and I began asking myself, what were Emma's dreams for her life? What did Emma envision for herself five, ten, and more years into the future? And I becam very melancholy.I interrupted Bob loading his kiln and said, "Let's go walking." And we went to the lovely blue-paved walking trail near the reservoir in back of a local school. I thought to myself, "If I don't start walking, I'll die."To my delight, my Canadian geese were in full flotilla, gliding near the bank where I was walking. My children have always laughed at how much I look forward to my little ducks and geese which migrate to Archusa Reservoir every year. Their appearance - and disappearance - mark the seasons of my life.I thought of how badly I wished Emma were walking with me, and I thought of the woman in the book who had just made a beautiful embroidered coat for the snow-girl she knew would return. But Emma will not be returning, no matter what season of the year it is.Emma's dreams are lost with her. Oh, I know what her immediate dream was......to be the perfect wife and housekeeper for Randall, at least the very best she could be. But in her deepest imaginings, what was her life's ambition? That elusive dream she seemed to be chasing in all the wrong places, at least until she met Randall?The llittle snow-girl in Eowyn Ivey's book is a quiet, fey creature who presents the couple with hares in her blood-stained hands, hares she has brought as a gift. What gifts were you trying to bring us in your world-stained hands, my Emma-girl? WHat would I say to to you if you suddenly appeared furtively dashing in and out and between the trees in our backyard?I have to walk. I have to do something, or I know I will die before I should. I can feel it......my breathlessness, my heartrate sometimes racing, my tired body groaning just to climb a couple of flights of stairs. Emma, I'll be thinking of you when I walk, when I watch my dear flock of geese finally go back North for the summer.

Well, Emma, I went to see Dr.Allen, and i brought him a potter coffee mug I made. I thanked him for all the encouragement and help he gave you and the rest of our family. I went to see him about some lesions on the inside of my mouth. He has made an appointment to get biopsies, etc. He said I have about a 50/5o chance of mouth cancer. Waiting for the appointment is not easy! If you were around, you would find some way to cheer me up..... :(

Hey, Emma, 2012 will be the first new year in 23 years that we have spent without you....We went to Starkwille today, and as we went through the town, I wondered how many of the streets we went through were places that you had been.Your time in that town, remains a mystery to me. I wonder what you were up to during your wild time.... Maybe it's best I don't know...?Well,I hope you are at peace, little one.

Emma, everybody invades us tomorrow for Christmas Eve. This will be our first Christmas without you, and that's not a good thought. I was thinking today what I would buy you for Christmas if you were here..... It's going to rough on Mom to look around and not see you as we open presents.We miss you!
