Missing you today. Missing you everyday. I think of you often. My son, Todrick is 18 and graduates this week. He's an outstanding young man. You would be so proud.
He mentioned the police force yesterday and I felt so overwhelmed. I couldn't explain the emotion.
He has received many awards for leadership in JROTC. He's even been scouted out by West Point!
I have a 16 year old daughter, Alana Simone. She's a singer, dancer, and actress just like me!
Can you believe I'm in a live band? You loved music! You used to teach me the latest moves all while showing me defense moves! Ha!
Everytime I cross a street, I still feel you hugging me tight when you came to help me cross a busy street I was so afraid of.
I remember laughing at how gross I thought your sweat was and you laughed and said "Girl, I ran all the way here to help you cross this street and that's how you act"?
Even when my cousins stood there and laughed, you told me there was nothing wrong with asking fur help. ESPECIALLY if I ever needed my uncle!

Can you believe I considered joining the force to go into Special Ops...Mabey even be a detective?
I was hooked when you told me stories about your training and that cold water in the pool. I always said "oh I could do that!"
I was SO proud that you achieved your goals. You were determined. I always think I get that determination spunk from you!

I'm quite goofy like you. We had so many laughs. You seemed to be the only one who got my jokes. I still feel bad about possibly breaking your nose when you were showing me how to defend myself. I was always so clumsy. After that, I cried yet you laughed while hurting and said GOOD JOB!!

I talk to you often and I feel you hear me.
You were the best uncle a girl could have.

I Love and miss you Unc.
