I MISS YOU I LOVE YOU
Just finished reading your letter again! I’m so tired I didn’t know whether to write tonite or not. But I don’t think I’m that tired. I also got a letter from Lu today. Boy we put in a 13 hr. day again today! All I did was sit in an amphib with a radio but I even got tired doing nothing. I got off the alert tonite & tomorrow I don’t know how I did & I’m not trying to find out. I’m not on guard this week-end so I guess I’ll come to K.C. & get tight as hell – because I think it’ll be my last!
It’s been cloudy all day & now its raining like hell – I hope it clears up over the week-end.
Frank Moon is singing “More Than Ever” now. I could just write that song to you & you’d know what I want to say. Do you know it?
Honey – I’m going to have some pictures taken as soon as I get time. Maybe this week-end!
Honey – I’m sorry I backed away from that kiss. I wish I had it now. But I just felt kinda mean.
Honey – I guess I’ll close for tonite – I get to thinking about you & can’t write.
Answer soon Sweetheart – I miss you.
