Dear Son,
How time flies yet the memories are so vivid. From the moment we were told you had been shot to the moment you were placed in the ground I visualize everything in my mind. I am still haunted by the thought that someone would be so cruel as to end the life of another. Then I pray for strength to alter my thoughts to fond memories of you and our family. I dream of you on occasion and you are always so happy and smiling. This gives me a reassurance that you are loving your home in heaven. For this I am grateful. Our family is still very private and close knit. We draw strength from each other and of course our faith. Please look down and take care of each of us. We miss you so much and strive to qualify to join you in heaven when the time comes. Watch over your sisters and their families and of course over your Dad and me. We love you son and miss you tremendously.
Mom and Dad
