Hi Tom! I know it's been awhile since I visited you here. The last time I wrote you a nice long note on your Anniversay it somehow got lost. You know me & computers. & remember how you used to always help me with my homework or let me copy yours. Just another perk of being a twin. You were the best of the best. I miss you so much every day, I'm still crying those big huge tears from time to time. I hope they are taking good care of you in heaven & everything is peaceful. I have been having such a good time at our classmates get togethers, all your friends are such great guys. I'm also thinking about our 60th Birthday coming up. Wish we could celebrate it together.My thoughts & prayers will be with you every moment of that day & I'll be celebrating life in your honor, I know you would want me to & your Dear family will also be celebrating life on our special day. I"ll love you& miss you forever! Ginger
Can you believe its been a year since you left our lives? It feels like just yesterday and the pain still lingers, but things are getting easier. Mom is doing a lot better now that we've done everything at least once. One Fathers day, one Christmas, etc. It'll make the holidays a lot easier knowing it is possible. I wish you could see Michelle right now. She's getting pretty dang big and her belly button is about to pop like a turkey timer. We're thinking of Alana or Ava Katherine for our daughter’s name. Katherine for Michelle's sister of course. We're going to wait to meet her before we decide though. Meghan agreed to be her god mother and mom already bought a pattern and fabric for her christening gown. Meg's going to be a great god mother.
We're all doing well and miss you so much. It helps that its sunny out right now, but its supposed to rain later. We need the rain and I'm sure you've heard mom's prayers for it.
Say hi to Phil and Vern up there and give Harry Carey my best.
Love you Dad!
I had my first humming bird today on my deck. I thought you'd get a kick out of that. I have a seed feeder up too. Seems to be attracting some birds so far.
I wish you were here to give me some advise on all this bird stuff!
I miss you every day Dad... I love you!
1 year ago today we found out about your tumor . I still cant believe its only been a year.
I ate my lunch outside in my car today so I could listen to the Twins game :) I thought you would like that. It was a beautiful day today, nice and sunny. Doesn't seem fair that you couldnt be here to enjoy it too.
I had a dream the other night that you called me from heavan. It made me feel really good. You told me that you were sorry but you couldnt remember my name because they dont have names in heavan but that you know I am your daughter and that you love me. Then everything burst into a thousand stars and you told me that they were all my family and that they loved me too...
I love you dad.
I just wanted to wish you and Ginger a happy B-Day. I know you weren't a big fan of your birthday, but I feel its important that you would have been 58 years old today. Mom sent Ginger some flowers and she sent us a nice email. You've got a great twin there dad. Speaking of twins, you missed a great game last night. You would have been yelling Yab-a-daba-dooo! We sure miss you dad. Today and everyday. We'll be listening to you from heaven as we make it through today. Thanks for a nice sunny day dad!
I see Dylan beat me to the punch to talk about our new little baby girl :) Its only right I guess since he's the daddy! haha We are all so excited to meet baby, but we all miss you dad and wish you could be here too! Please watch over her as she grows .. I am sure you will!
I am hoping her birthday is August 2nd so I dont ever have to have a birthday again :) Cosgrove's dont particularily like their birthdays... do they? haha
Love your daughter,
I'm sure you already know this, being in heaven and all, but I uploaded a bunch of pictures of your new Granddaughter! At least we're 90% sure she's a girl. Her birthday will tentatively be August 7th, so another Leo girl to add to the mix. I promise that I'll try to be as good a father as you were and that I will teach her how to juggle. I hope you're doing well in heaven with Grandpa Phil and Grandpa Vern. I'm sure you're all very proud of us. I'll also make sure she knows you as Grandpa Grover!
We miss you so much!
