Dear Joseph & Lucia,
You are about to get a new step-mother. We’ve been together for several years and we finally decided to get married. When your grand parents died (my side), I realized how important it is to publicly live with someone you are committed to and love.
She is very pretty and is my best friend. We talk about you two all the time.
She is from Europe and we are going back there so she can see her Mum and Dad who she hasn’t seen in 8 years. About as long as I haven’t see you two. That is where we are going to get married. Michèle has been saving all the stories to share with you two when we see each other again. She has two daughters. The youngest daughter is 15… same as you, Joseph. The oldest is 19. Their names are Rachael and Melynda respectively. Melynda will start attending a major college in Oklahoma this fall. Rachael is going to complete her high school at the local community college in a special course so she can graduate with an Associate’s as well as a diploma. I’m very proud of both of them. Here are pictures of both of them
I love both of you with all my heart and miss you incredibly. I’m very sad another Father’s Day went by without you guys.
We live in the Dallas area in a lovely house with a pool. I work in Oklahoma City, so I’m only home on the weekends and stay up here during the week. It makes me very lonely, but I use the phone, Skype and internet to stay in touch with Michèle and the girls as much as I can.
I love you both so much.
