"My father was in the Vietnam War and the mail was the most important thing to him. He used to tell me how he looked forward to receiving the mail because he knew there would be a letter from his daughter Norma Jean . This was what he always called me. I would write my dad every other day while he was in Vietnam. I think I must have been in my early teens. He would tell me I was the only one he would hear from and we used to talk about that before he passed two years ago. Now I wish I could send him another letter letting him know how much he is missed and loved."
