For Max, my son
Twenty-six years I looked at her
She was the prettiest girl I ever knew
We made love for my first time
It was the first time for her too
Fifteen years she was married to me
Every time I think of it … I almost cry
She was the only woman I’ll ever love
Now I only want to die
We had a child; he is beautiful
Looks like his mommy, but sweeter inside
Now I have to leave and go away
You don’t know how much I’d like to stay
I’ll be here if you’d like to call
Someone else will teach you to throw the ball
Take care of mommy; tell her I loved her so
Sorry champ, it’s time to go
I love you, Max, and I will always be thinking of you
If you ever need advice and want your daddy
If you find a girl you want to marry
Make sure she loves you
Save twenty cents of every dollar
So you will have something for a rainy day
Whatever you are doing, try your best
Always be kind
Give a homeless guy a couple bucks now and then
Always overuse “I Love You”
Listen to people older than you even if you disagree
Always drive safe
Never take someone for granted
Have a few, but don’t cross the line
Go for walks; it gives you time with nothing to do but think
If someday you’re living with your wife
Don’t spend your time caught up in fights
If you do you may look back and realize
You have wasted your whole life.
I love you, Max.

Pitkin County administrators are proposing a more than $142 million budget for 2020, which is about $6 million less than this year because of fewer construction projects and capital improvements.
