Letters From Home That Keep Me Going No Matter What

So I received these letters back in like 2018 around Christmas the same time. At that time it was from my 13 year old brother,12 year old sister and my 3 year old son. That year was going not so good for me nor my family. Here’s a lil of what these letters stated. From my lil bro. Dear bubba Jay, I got yours and uncle LB’s cards, thank you and God bless your hearts. I miss ya’ll so much… I can’t wait til you get out so we can do a whole bunch of fun stuff together! Jay, I can’t wait til you get out so you can get that barber shop opened, so I can come work with you! we are going to have so much fun. I just wanted you to know how much I love you. Sincerely Nathan lil bro.

Lil sister: Dear bubby Jay, How are you? I’m good! I have good grades in school. I miss you lots! And I love you lots. Merry Christmas and a happy new year. My quote bro: thy will never forget thee!!:) “) :)’

My 3 year old son: Dear Daddy, I love how you give me hugs and kisses and I give you lots of love. Daddy, I love you and miss you so much, so I had auntie momo write this for me. Love Jay Jay.
