“Happy Valentine’s Day Grandma! I hope you know just how very much you are loved, today and every day!! I wish I could drive down right now to see you and give you a great big hug, then just sit and talk for hours- and maybe one day soon that can happen…once all the “virus stuff” is over.
I’m sorry that I haven’t written or called in a very long time. It’s hard for me to know what to say, but I will try to do better for you. I hope things are going well at your new place and that you’ve made some amazing new friends.
I think the last time I wrote you was before my wedding. I got married to Jesse Dale on August 29th 2020- you had met him a few times before you moved to Nebraska. He is a very kind and sweet man and he shares my love of horses. He actually raises and sells horses as part of his ranching business, maybe this spring I will send you some pictures of the new babies running around. I’m so very sorry that you couldn’t come to the wedding (stupid virus and restrictions) but we did record it and maybe when I do come to visit we could watch it, if you wanted. I want you to know that I thought of you often that day and I had you with me through the whole thing- I had a string of your pearls in my bouquet, along with grandpa’s dog tags, so that you both could be part of my special day. You both are such a HUGE part of my life and the woman I am today- it didn’t seem right to not have you involved. I miss you and I love you so much!!
Dad and Mom (Larry and Leah) are staying busy on the farm. We weaned and sold our steer calves and surprisingly they sold well. We kept our heifer calves and are feeding them through the winter to make some replacements for our herd. Luckily our cows have not started calving yet, the temperatures have been so very cold! This last week the average temperature has been around -10 I would guess, plus windchill…definitely NOT a good time to have new baby calves on the ground. It is supposed to warm up in the next week or so- and I can’t wait!
I suppose I should let you get back to your friends and all the fun activities they have planned for you in your apartment! I hope you get lots of treats and maybe even some flowers today!! I hope you can feel the hugs and kisses I am sending your way- love and miss you much!”
