  1. Daddy, I miss you more than you can possibly know. I know that you would be so happy to know that you are continuing to help others! Buttons is happy, but he misses you, too. Your passion flower is blooming and it is really very beautiful! We have taken lots of clippings and passed them out, so your plant will live on in many different homes in Virginia and North Carolina. I love you so much.
