"Hey mom today was like all the other days that I wish I could share with you in person. Found out that Auntie Bunny has stage 4 cancer and the she said that the doctors are giving her 6 months to a year to live. Yeah this is a pretty hard one to deal with. I know what I was taught and what I believe in is true but it still hurts. I wish I had words of encouragement and comfort to tell her but honestly this is harder than I thought. I keep flashing back to the road you traveled and it was rough. Tonight before I go to bed I will pray to God and ask him for strength and understanding not only for me but for her kids and their children and the rest of the family, cause only God can do the impossible and I know I can't go wrong with him nor his word. My heart is heavy and my spirit is sadden but I will continue to grow and be strong for all those around me. Today I found out that another friend of mine's wife passed away on her birthday and I can't even imagine the pain that he is feeling right now. I'm scared mom of going through that if something like that happened to me. I don't never want to feel that pain, but I know I love Keisha with all my heart and some and if it happens that way then I can say thank you for allowing me the opportunity to love her whole heartily even if it's only for a short time. I've asked her to marry me and she said yes. I wish you could see her face when she talks about it and see how she glows when she gets excited thinking about it. She truly does make me happy and the girls are my pride and joy. I am going to be the most proudest man ever to have her as my wife. I've seen my girls in my dreams again and this time they have gotten so much older and it seems like they know that they are with me in my dreams. I wish I could have a real relationship with them. I miss them so much. Well I also wanted to tell you that Clint passed away earlier this year too. Yeah another hard one to get through but I didn't have to do it all by myself thanks to all those around me. The 4 of us are doing a pretty good with each other. We keep in touch with each other and we stay on each others heart. Well I can go on and on talking with you but as you know I got a few things to take care of before I go to bed so good night mom. I love you."

"Hey mom well Martrice went on prom yesterday and she looked beautiful. We wished that you was there in the physical form to see her but we all felt your presence. Auntie Martha was there to stand in your place and to be proud for you. She has many more chapters in her life ahead of her and I know that you will be with her. Yes your cookies pulled it off for her and I couldn't believe that this was the same little girl who used to run around the house with a pacifier hanging out the side of her mouth yelling "Vonna mama want you". She has taken another major step in life and it's all thanks for the guidelines that you set up for her early on. I looked at her today and seen that she is becoming a beautiful woman and a smart one cause she made an important decision to make sure her life is better and a little bit more easier by accomplishing this goal. I'm not sure what my future may hold but I will always remember this day and stand proudly to be her uncle. Everybody has their own roles to play and slowly we are starting to fill in those spots and take on other roles that we didn't know about and excel in them. I am so proud of my sister's for using the knowledge that you put in them and for being as independent and headstrong as they are. I have to make it over to the house today to spend some time with your last cookie and just look at her face and smile so she can ask me why you all in my face smiling and get on TaVonna nerves and just have a good time with them and let them know that I love them. Well while I was laying here dreaming I thought about you and just had to write you about today. Thanks for everything that you have done and the love that you shared and the knowledge that you put in all of us, we love you mom."

"Hey mom I was just thinking about you on my way home and wanted to call you up and tell you the good news that all I have left is 4 more classes then I'm going to try and get my license back. I know that you would be so proud of me right now. I plan on getting them and going to truck driving school and be an over the road driver. My first trip I'm taking you with me, we get to see this country together like we always wanted. Mom this is so exciting to me to be this close to making a dream come true. I know you are with me and you never left that's why you are going with me to help me read the map and road signs. I know that we are going to have so much fun on the road together. Mom I love you so much and please let my kids know that I love them too. I will keep you posted on everything going forward. Love you."

"Hey mom I know that you know by now that you are a Great Granny, too bad neither of us got the chance to meet her. Happy birthday mom. Lil Kevin has a baby girl and she looks just like him. Maybe one day I'll get to meet her and tell her about how wonderful her Granny is. Her name is Zaria Renee Giles, she's about 4 soon to be 5.Now I am starting to understand the feeling that you have about your grandchildren. I'm working towards getting my license so I can be a better provider for my family. I'm not sure what the future will bring but I know that you are watching over all of us. I love you mom."

"Hi mom, it's been a while since we've last talked. I have so many things I want to ask you but I want you to know that I love you and I deeply miss you. Everybody's missing you and your bff's have been keeping a close watch over us. I just wanted to say thank you for being an awesome mother. We've shared so many different experiences together and planned many more. I know that you are still watching over us with your warm smile and loving arms wrapped around us. I look at your pictures and I think about all the times we've laughed and cracked jokes. I've never thought that I would be writing you a message this way. This is very hard for me to write about. I miss you so much and I love you."
