We are ready to board our plane from Maui home to Oregon and my Dad calls. He tells me:
“I have been carrying your picture and my granddaughter’s picture with me. I show everyone.
I read your letter everyday.
I have to teach you of the stories from the past so you can tell them in the future.
I have missed over 40 years, I will call you everyday.
You are a leader, you have it in your blood. It’s who we are.”
