I'm terribly sorry that I haven't checked in with you all in so long.  Things can be crazy hectic sometimes when you're a single dad of 3.  But I do think of you often  I continue to pray that you all are doing well.  

So far, we've made it to 2 Relays for Life.  The first one, we didn't stay too long, as Beth was very tired, *read CRANKY*.  But the second one, we stayed for the luminary service, and cried our eyes out.  It was absolutely beautiful.

I came here tonight to share a small part of my life with you.  I had a friend of Kim's draw me up a tattoo design recently.  We talked about what the imagery meant, and I sent her a rough draft.  She has the skills of a professional artist, where mine are the skills of a pre-schooler.  But I had the tattoo done today.  It came out every bit as beautiful as I imagined it to be.  So this is the representation of mine and Kim's life together.....

Matt,

Thank you for checking in with us.  We all miss Kim so much too.   Your tattoo of your life with Kim is amazing and beautiful.  Sounds like you have your hands full raising 3 kids.  I bet Miss Beth keeps you on your toes!
