In my "Out Box" • Snail Mail

Dear Max,

I want to wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Now that you are 10 years old, you are no longer a single digit kid. Now you’re a double digit young man!! Welcome to the next exciting phase in your life!

How is school? Are you keeping an eye on Hope and Liam? I’m sure you are as good a big brother as you always were. Please give everyone a BIG hug and tell them that I love and miss them.

It sure would be nice if you could come and visit me during your Christmas Break or Summer Vacation. If you ever want to do this and it’s OK with your mom, let me know and I will book you a plane ticket to California. I really think you would like it here! The sun shines almost all of the time and it hardly ever gets cold. I love being near the ocean. Remember how much fun we would have at my house at Alki Beach?

I wish you would talk to me when I call. It hurts my feelings when you don’t want to talk to me. If you’re mad at me for moving, or for anything; we need to talk about it. I am still your dad and I still love you and miss you even though we don’t live near each other.

Maybe, if you don’t want to talk on the phone, you could write me a letter, draw me a picture or send me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you!

Please write, here is the address:

Tom & John Frank
6430 Charlesworth Ave.
N. Hollywood, CA 91606

or e-mail me at tfrank8176@mac.com

Did you have a good time for Halloween? Get a bunch of candy? I hope you all had a great time.

Well son, I love you and miss you. I hope you like the Birthday presents.


With more love than you can imagine


Dad

I sure hope he has it read to him and takes it to heart. You're a good man Mr. Frank, and you disserve the respect any good man disserves. Have you heard back from him at all yet?

No, He wouldn't talk to me on the phone, on his birthday. Oh well. . .guess I'll keep trying.

Thanks for the kind words Sol.
