My grandmother wrote Brooks a letter and I just have to put it on here so that I have it kept somewhere. She wrote it on a card with a warrior Indian on his horse. She included a $50 check. This is what she wrote:
Welcome to our family. Take everyone to dinner and order you the biggest steak they have.
I hope you'll like to read about cowboys and Indians like Grandpa did.
Grandma went to Sea World and saw porpoises and whales dance and jump way out of the water.
It's very hot in California. Soon you can run and play with Angel and the kids. Let mom sleep at night so she will be cheerful and rested.
You're a lucky boy to be in the Robinson family. I hope you'll go on a mission like Nathan and your dad.
Have mom freeze some juice and make slushes.
Be good to your sisters and help mom and dad like Austin does.
I hope you grow up to love veggies and fruit.
Send me a picture.
For those who don't know, Brooks' middle name is Delor, after my Grandpa Eastman. He and I were very close - more like a father to me. Like Grandma, I hope Brooks will be like my grandpa.
