Hey Uncle John. You've Got a Great Nice from Scottie. Aurora Grace Schwartz, hope you have your hands full. I don't understand why Jareb had to grow up on his own but he did a real great Job. Vanity of vanities. All is vanity under the sun, and it's just too bad that we never got to experience fellowship together. Made a lot of peace on this page here. As a man they will have to lay me down. Not put me down, ain't that right?
Love and respect Uncle Meme and Scottie love you.
They need you, your son could have used you, and I could have used a few run ins that's for sure. I've got to move around because the streets are dangerous at night. I'm homeless, putting myself through school right now with nobody backing me. They will have to lay me down like you before I let the darkness in this overwhelming world consume me. "Love you"
