Papa Mario,
I love and miss you terribly. Thank you for serving our country so honorably. You’re part of the reason I have enlisted as you know. And also because of you I am Harvard bound!

Remember when you let me pretend to be a doctor as a little kid and put all types of weird stuff on your fingernail that was gross and growing in wrong? You always supported my wild and crazy dreams and I love you more than I think you ever knew.

Love, Emile and Kenley
