I miss you so much. Every Single day I cry. As it’s getting close to thanksgiving I'm waiting to hear you say you want some thanksgiving food. I wish I can get the phone call from you. I love you and miss you so much. I thank you for all you have done for me and for everything that you have taught me. People told me that this was going to get better as time passed but it hasn’t. I still cry every day and my heart is broken into some many little pieces that it’s hard for to put it back together. I pray for strength because lord knows it’s really hard for me.

To My Grandaddy...
Still after 2 months this seem so surreal to me. I miss you so much. I learned so much from you. You were the epitome of "A Real Man" the true definition of a "Father" and I appreciate all you have done for me. I will admit you were so hard on me and I hated it. But after I was old enough to understand and the way you looked at me when I did what you wanted me to do (Get some education) I knew you were proud. It made my heart happy to hear you tell people how proud you were of me and my sisters. Granddaddy I know you arent here anymore and although that hurts so bad still to this day, I know you are watching over me and MyMy. Thank you and I Love you Forever and Always. See you when I get there.
