Hey Scotty
It’s been a little while but I think of you often. I wonder what you are doing in Heaven these days since your Mom and your Brother Tommy have Joined you. Hope your still hanging out with Dad some. Hey would ya hug Jesus real Sweet and hard for me and tell him I Love him and I can’t wait to see him? Thanks. You are missed Brother but I would never want you too come back here for even a moment! That would be Crazy Cruel of me my friend because I know where you dwell today. Please tell my Dad I Miss and Love him so and I Cherish the day I See him again. I hope y’all are together along with Jesus and many other Loved ones when my time comes to Cross Over Jordan to Be Home.
Life here is still hard but I try to live in the moment. Not many people do that anymore. People are so mean and judgemental. Everyone wants to just throw you away if you don’t fit their mold but they want you to accept them and theirs just as it is - who really cares about what you want ? It’s all about what they think you need but they can’t even know what they need! So. God has to Be the Answer!!
