My dearest brother I have missed you and thought of you every since your untimely death. You really weigh on my mind today as we have lost yet another brother that was employed by the Los Angeles Co Sheriffs Department. I know Jimmy will meet you in heaven and that does give my heart some peace. We have also lost brothers Mack Andrews, of the Los Angeles Police Department, Jesse Andrews of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department, Jackson Andrews and last year Richard Andrews. Your sisters Beaulah Baldwin and Glayds Mosley have gone on also. We started as a family of 12 siblings and are down to four. I know that all of this is in God's will even though I don't know why he has taken all of you from me. All I can do is still give him praise and trust that he knows why. Brother I love you and miss you tremendously. When you were taken he took one of the best. I remember when we were in school and our parents gave us lunch money and you were a few years older, you opted not to eat everyday, saved your money and brought Chirstmas presents for the three children under you. What a sacrifice you made to see a smile on our faces. Your heart was so kind and loving. Even though I love all my siblings you always stood out in my heart. I surely hope you are resting in the peace that you so deserve. I look forward to rejoicing with you on the other side. Mother use to always remind me how you asked her to go to the hospital and get a girl and make sure she was light. I'm the girl that you asked mom for and I am glad she was able to accommodate your wishes. You always treated me as if I was your child as well and I was. There was nothing you would not do for me when I asked. When you joined the department making decent money you helped me get a car made sure I went to prom and had a nice dress. I will always remember you until the end of my time. Take care for now, I know you are only a thought away when I need you. I love you to infinity.
