Dear Dad, It's been so long since I've even been on here. So much has happened, Momma (Mimi) died June 24, 2017. About a week or two after she turned 64, she had a good life though, she was loved, and appreciated. I miss you both so much, I dream about having y'all's arm's around me again. Kaitlyn and Taylor are doing good, their coping. It's crazy to think that it's been 7 years since you passed. The girls and I are living with a family friend named Gina, we love her and she loves us. We have a brother, that's the same age as me, his name is Logan, he's pretty awesome. I love and miss you so much, words can't even explain it. We haven't heard from Haleigh since she left Alabama, about after Momma's memorial service. When you died, I had a lot of questions, some that will never be answered, when Momma died, I discovered the answers to some of those questions. But, receiving answers and explanations, also usually comes with more questions, at least in my case it does. We have a new life, we must live in the present and now the past, we must trust in the Lord our God, because he has a plan, whether we understand it or not, but it's whether we choose to follow his path, and trust in him, determine the end. I thank the Lord everyday for blessing my family and I for having each other and the amazing people that have come into our lives along the Journey. I honestly don't know what life would be like without the amazing people I am so blessed to have and know in my life. I pray everyday that God will show me the plans he has for me and that he will take care of our family and bless them. I love you Daddy, forever and always! Love, Emileigh B.

Dear Daddy, I know I haven't wrote to you in a while, I love you so much and I miss,we all do. I'm now 11 years old, it's been 6 years since you passed and went to a better place in Heaven, but it feels like it happened yesterday. I feel like no one in the world feels or knows how I feel, Daddy I love and miss you so words can't even explain! I wish you were her even for just 5 second, I would do anything in the world to be able to wrap my arms around you and to say I love and wish Momma could and Kaitlyn and Taylor and the whole family. We all love and miss you so much words can't even explain. What they did to you was wrong Daddy, I promise with all my hart I will give you justice no matter what it takes. Tonight I pray that the Lord will bring you justice and that one day we will all be together when the Lord needs us. My Prayer is... Dear Heavenly Father God, tonight I come to you in Prayer that you will bless this family and Lord I try my best not to ask you for to much, but please Lord Heavenly Father I pray to you that Me, Kaitlyn, & Taylor's Daddy will get Justice and that Mimi(Momma) will get Justice for her son, Raleigh Dodson Blackburn. -Amen

Raleigh I think about you everyday there is not a day that passes that something doesn't remind me of you. Your smile your laugh from the last time I was with you is what keeps me going until we meet again. I know you look after me in so many ways I know you are happy and at peace with everything. I know you are going to pick me a beautiful baby boy because I know that you know everything that's going to happen I don't have to tell you. We had nowhere enough time together life is truly short-lived if only I could have known you had to go so soon I wouldn't have left your side. I am so glad we had those last couple years together they meant so much to me. I love you I will never forget you...Haleigh
