Linenger's Letters to his Son

April 21, 1997
One hundred days in space"

Dear John:

Just completed one hundred days in space.

Still recall vividly how you looked the last time I saw you, one hundred and three days ago.

You were sitting in your carseat, reaching out for me to release you, grab you, and hold you--but I was in quarantine and could only look at you through the window. Mommy and you drove away. Gloomy day. I stood there alone and thought: man, am I going to miss that little guy.

Goodnight. Love and miss you alot.
