"Hey brutha!  Its been awhile since I wrote to you but don't think for a second that I didn't think of you because I miss you soooo much.  I wish I could have moved back home before Jesus invited you to his home.  Hopefully I will be moving back home soon, I think it would make Mom a little happier, I just know she is hurting inside and missing you something awful.  I keep telling her to not let it bother too much because I am sure you are doing well in heaven.  I sure can't wait to see you up there and hope that God doesn't have any of those darn See-n-Say toys so you don't knock me on the head!

Love you Jimmy!!"

Well Im waiting to get my surgery done on the 31st of July, I know Ill get thru it surgery has become my favorite pastime. LOL Ive had enough of them but Ive got a body of steel.  When I leave this world there will be a time I wont be so strong and it will be my time to go, Ill see you in heaven, I cant wait to see my Grandpap and my lovely mother, what a great lady, I am so happy I helped her as much as I could and my Dad too. My Mom didn't leave me when I was little and I didn't leave her when she was old.I go to church with Ken and God has changed me for the better, Ive given my life to him and hes in my heart.

Having a child that loves you and treats you good mean so much.. We had a happy family years ago, then things got out of hand and bingo it ended, I never left you kids when you were younger, why did my 2 leave me when I got old.

No kids respects their parents any more and one little thing goes wrong and its all over they are heartless, it saddens me. I am glad ill be leaving this world and not coming into it. Dad is still working what a man!!! His daughter Sherry will be coming this week for Fathers day, I cant wait to see them.

"Jimmy, This is Tuesday, two days after mothers day, I cried more today, missing you so much, Sometimes I say to my self you are still here, I just haven't seen you, then I snap back to reality and I know you aren't here. I carried you for nine months, wiped your nose, changed your diaper fed you, I was your voice, I was your mother, you were a tough one to handle but we did it, You were happier in a group home, you got to go places, it was a whole new world for you. I missed you but I couldn't manage to care for you, You had behaviors, there were so many other things too, it was hard for me but I knew I had to do it.  I saw you all the time, and I made sure you were being taken care of. I would call everyday, I know they were sick of me, but I didn't care, I wanted you to have the best., who would ever think you would go with the Lord before me? God had his plan , he didn't want you to be on earth without me cause I was the only one that looked after you. If I would of went first, then who would of made sure you were being cared for,? You would of been left alone cause no one visited you, only Dad and me, so you see God had a plan. I miss you so much my butterfly, I will keep your memory alive as long as Im alive, then were on our own buddie. We will be fine, we always were with the help of our Lord.  Kisses Jimmy?  I miss them. Love Momma."

The love I have for you is just so much. maybe to much that ill never get over this, and I know I wont get over it, and it hasent changed any, Dad has  been the greatest husband to me, everytime I start to cry he says its a Jimmy cry and I say yes, and he puts his arms around me and says I wish I could do something to lessen the pain, no he cant do anything, no one can, My best friend Jesus can help me get thru this with your birthday coming up, Im already for it, I got the fire lanterns, I have to buy the balloons yet, it hurts Jim cause you would of turned 48,    Love and kisses, soon, my baby butterfly, Love Momma"
