I love my daughters very much, but will always miss their brother. Ben we love you and your hello every evening, like clock work, because it is your watch alarm that goes off every evening, for almost 16 years now, we still haven't changed the battery! Thanks for keeping an eye on us.
I will do all this with tempered control and reason. And when you are a full grown human, I will respect your choices, philosophies and boundaries because I trust your ability to know what's good for you and to make healthy responsible choices!
