Gramma and Grampa did not send you away. You were taken by bad people. We have always told you that we love you and that we would always be here for you. We still are and we will not stop. We will fight until you can come home. We miss you bunches. Gramma cries at night. She misses giving you your baths in your red tub. Your chickens are okay. They are still laying eggs, but no baby chickens yet. Your garden grew nicely. We ate some of the cauliflower, but the rest is still out there in the cold. Since you are not here, we have not cared about it enough to harvest it. Cabbage is great and the tatas are plentiful from what we can see. We guess the chickens will eat it. Keeneye, Rosie, Bonehead and Merle all say hi and that they miss you too. Keeneye wanders around the house looking for you. She won't leave my side no matter where I am.
We have taken out the big fireplace. The living room is now way bigger. Boy, that was hard work. We still need to finish the Sheetrock and stuff, but we can do that in the winter time. We have also almost completed your new bedroom addition on the house. It is nice. The roof is on, the siding is on and in a day or two the outside will be all done. Then we can work on the inside. We have to tear out that big window and put in a door for you. Otherwise, how would you get in there silly.
All your friends at work miss you. They ask how you are when we see them.
[L]: Your new glasses are here. They came in the day after you were taken. We have told your mom and others that they are here but no one has picked them up yet. I heard your other ones are broken all the way now. We know it will be hard in school without them.
[M]: I had to take down John Cena. I had to put him in Smack Down. He was in the way when I was fixing the wall. I will put him back up in the new room when I get it finished. Your jacket is hanging in the kitchen. When you get back, we will hang out. Just me and you.
Elliot: Grampa misses our morning routine when I get home from work. I miss you jumping up out of bed and saying "Hi Grampa!" and I would say "HI Elliot!". Then we would make coffee together and eat donuts if I brought any home. I also miss your little happy jumpy sideways thingy.
We miss all of you and it will be okay. We will see you soon.
Love Gramma and Grampa.
