Dear Editor, These are letters written to Dalton James before his death. Dear Graaddad, Thank you for everything you have ever done. You always managed to be where ever I needed you, no matter at what cost it took. I appreciate it so much. I am glad we have had the chance and time to have some talks and straighten out some things I have felt that I was wrong about. You have always made me feel spe- ciaL I hope you realize that you are just as special to me. Granddad you're the "BEST" (I mean that) I love you always and forever, Aimee Written May 14, 1994 Dear Granddad, Well, I guess you're surprised to get a letter from me - I usually calL I'm not sure what I'm guing to say so I guess I'll start writ- hg and say what's in my heart and hope it comes out right. It seems kind of sad that most people always wait until a crisis or when they're about to lose someone before they tell them how they feeL I'm sorry I've done that and waiteo this long to tell yon. Morn gave me a little quotation book for Christmas and one of them said "Treat everyone you care about as if it were the last time you'll see them." Granddad, you and Orandmom have always been there for me and loved me uncondition- ally. For that, I will alwaysbe grate- ful. You were always there for me growing up and made me feel safe whenever I was scared or felt lone- ly. I'm so glad I had a "second daddy." I'm so thankful our family, through alot ofhard work, love and patience, is better than it's ever been before. I know my children will reap the benefits of all the time and effort we have put into this tinily. I have so many wonderful memories of you as I Was growing up. Here are a few... I loved hear- ing all of your %cary  stories. 1 especially loved "dig herel" I'm sure rye heard it a hundred times _ or more. I remember when you went to look at Trixie, the shetland pony you bought me. She was so stubborn! Do you think she was meant to be a part of this family?!! I remember going to the Pig Stand and getting a cheeseburger - some- times two. You used to take me to Taco Inn on Buckner and we would sit forever and eat tacos and drink coffee. You said it would put hair on my chest. I think my record was six tacosl! You would always laugh at me so I would keep eating them to make you smile. I remember when you and Mike came to my district track meeL I had just won 2nd place in the 200 meter and the coach decided to put me in the 400for the first time. I was so scared. You reassured me I could do it. I ended up winning 4th place in district, but you and Mike had to catch me at the finish line so I wouldn't fall over. Then you walked me around the football field until I got my strength back If Grandmom was working, you would drive to Dallas by your- self for my games or take care of me while Morn and Dad would be out of town. You always came in when I was sick and for all my surgeries, no matter how minor they were. I remember how much you cried at my wedding, but then again, everyone else did too. You even tried to get in the car when we were leaving for our honeymoonl I guess one of my favorite memories is singing with you all the way to Clarendon and back. One of my favorite was "On the Jericho Road." My list of memories could go on and on for days. They will always be in my heart. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'm going to miss you terribly, Granddad. I have never lost anyone close to me and is very painful to deal with. I know Jesus will take care of you until !can get there. I'll be up there Page 3 soon. I'm so thankful god gave us some time so we can say what we feel. I don't think I could deal with losing someone instantly. I wouldn't want anything left unsaid. Granddad, I know I've been a pain at times and you've loved me anyway. All I can say is I'm sorry and vlease, forgive me. I want to make the best of the time we have together. I knowthere willprobab- ly be a lot of things I'll forget to say in this letter. I just want you to know how very special you are to me and always will be. I also want you to know something else: #1 I will do my best to take care of everyone, make sure they have what they need, and stay together and happy. #2 1 will always keep your memory alive for Aaron and make new memories for Kaley. We will look at pictures and videos together and I'll tell them stories about you and how much fun they had with you. I promise I'll never let them forget their great- granddad. And #3isI will goback to college when Kaley is older. You have always been such a big part of my life. When I think of my family I think of Morn, Dad, Dimec, Mike and the kids, and you and Grandmom. I'm so grateful God gave me such wonderful caring grandparents. Please take care of yourself. I need you for as long as you can - we all do. You'll always be in my heart. I love you Granddad.
