    I miss you so much. Ever since everyone left us, the ones who remain with us as in our family have drifted and its sad. we need you, uncle jodie and unc Brad to bring us back together. I don’t know if its because i’m growing and maturing but i’m morning more and more for u guys in heaven. Maybe its reality that comes along with sobriety, but I guess that’s part of life. I always pray you guys are watching over us but I just ask that you bring our family back together and I’m finally dealing with my fears slowly and all my emotions hit me hard sometimes. I need my auntie back !!! Missing you and I hope you are standing at heaven’s gates when its my turn to come home love and miss you !!
