Hey Nickeldoo it's mama here just letting you know I am struggling so much without you. It has been over 3 years now. We are coming up on Easter and I found the video of the Easter play in 2012 where you played Jesus. I put it on your Facebook page to let everyone see what an awesome Jesus you made. I know you are now up in heaven with him and are happy, whole and full of joy. I miss those bright eyes, those dimples and that positive personality. Nickeldoo I am trying my best to do what you always told me, "Pray more, Read the Bible and Worry Less" and I can still hear you tell me, "It'll Be Alright Mom". I love you my son and my hero and I am looking forward to the day when I can see you again.
