It's been too long since I last wrote to you. Many things have changed since I last wrote. In August of 2016, I left the Forrest County Sheriff's Office and began working at the Lamar County Sheriff's Office. Since I started at LCSO, I have gained so many new friends who have become like family to me. I couldn't ask for a better agency or group of people to work for and with. We look out for each other, as we should. Over the last year I have made some mistakes that I am not proud of, but I have learned from those mistakes and I feel that you would be proud of the man I have become. I hope that you are proud of me. I try my hardest to live up to your expectations because you are one of the biggest role models in my life. As you know, Julie and I are expecting another baby girl due in January 2018. We are naming her Kimberly Grace (Kimber for short). Remmy has now turned 3 years old and everyone says how much she looks like me and acts like me. I could not be more proud to be her Daddy. Daddy has been going through a rough patch here lately with doctors and treatments, but I know you are looking over him as you are the rest of the family. Mama is doing good, she still works at East Central Middle School. She misses you alot, and now that I have grown a beard for work, she has told me how much I look like you even more. I cannot stop smiling when I hear her and others say that. To me that is the biggest compliment I could ever receive. Ariel is doing good. She is in nursing school. I think she will go a long way. She is very passionate when it comes to helping people. One thing is certain, she never quits. Isabella is now in the 6th grade. She has the biggest heart that I have ever seen and cares for everyone. That reminds me a lot of you because of how you cared for others. Nana and Papa are doing well. They continue to miss you and we constantly talk of the memories we have shared with you over the years. Steven is getting so big. He's a 7th grader and plays on the middle school football team. You'd be proud of him. It still amazes me how much he looks like you. Those big brown eyes are a big give away. Christmas is coming soon and that means one of our favorite movies (A Christmas Story) will be coming on Christmas Eve. We watch that movie every year in your honor. Bubba, I know you are in heaven watching over us, but here lately I wished that you were here with us more and more. I wish I could just call you up and talk to you for hours. I miss the days of going to the camp and riding four wheelers and going hunting. People have said many times that grief gets better with time, but I don't think that is completely true. It feels like you just left us yesterday, not 12 years ago. I have a shadow box filled with pictures of you and me that hangs by my bed. I look at them everyday smile, and think about all the good times we had together. I hope that I am making you proud. You are and forever will be my guardian angel and I know that one day we will meet again. Until then, please know that I love you with all of my heart and I am so proud to call you my uncle, my brother in blue, and my best friend. Please continue to protect Heaven's streets and continue to watch over our family. Until next time, Bubba I love you. RIP PPD#137!!
Love always,
