I’ve been through so much and so many things would have never happened if you would have been able to be here. I’m sorry you had to miss out on so much. Melanie has a kid, Colton’s in the army, I’ve been in the mental hospital 4 times now over trying to kill myself and self-harm. Christian is 12 now, he’s confused but okay. I miss you. You will forever be in my heart daddy. See you in heaven, eventually.
