I never got to meet you. Our daughter never got to meet you. I wish it could have been so. Although I am not apart of you by blood, my wife and daughter are. And I wish you eternal peace.

Valerie, I am sorry we didn't get the chance to reunite in person, I am glad we spent the time we did getting to know each other and share stories of our life. I am so glad that you had Lonnie to take care of you and ne there during the good and bad times until your final breath, what an amazing friend. I was happy to find out from you and your other daughters that you celebrated my birthday every year that truly touched my heart. I am sorry we were separated when I was a baby but I will always be your first born. These past few years it was hard to hear you suffer so much physically and I hope you are pain free and up in heaven catching a big fish! I hope your soul is finally at peace and all you feel now is the love and glory of God. RIP
