John Stuart Beeler
It doesn't seem possible that more than three years have passed since your death. I think about you daily and remember your wisdom. The last letter you sent to me contained advice that has served me well during the past few years: "Out of the mud the lotus springs." Thank you for being my mentor in so many ways. Though you were not my biological father, you were the only father figure in my life. Be at peace in the West. Netjer protect you always.
