Since You've Been Gone
We've cried, we have cried so hard sometimes.
We've laughed, we have laughed so hard sometimes.
We have told so many stories.
We've listened to old stories, and learned new ones.
We've planted a tree for you - it's a Magnolia, and it's next to the cabin.
We've grown big beautiful pumpkins.
We've cut all the wood for the winter.
We've watched the Pirates make it to the playoffs.
We've attended a Steelers and Mountaineers game, but aren't ready to watch your Blue Eagles.
We've shared meals at your kitchen table, and lots of dessert.
We have fully embraced "comfort food".
We've passed red Jettas on the road, but it wasn't you.
We've tried to fix the driveway at the farm, but don't know how.
We've thought about the barn project, but it seems too hard on our own.
Your little boy turned 30.
Your little boy inherited your bid number at Captina Creek.
We've canned tomatoes from the auction.
We've played with Nate and Will and Mikey.
We've gathered as a family and celebrated Brittany and Michael's wedding.
We have thought of you and missed you everyday.
Your John Boy and Mollie Bell
