I had posted or attempted to post a message to you but it didn't publish for some reason.
The other message was more lengthy and right now I can't duplicate it but I want you to know how much your letter to your brother touched my heart...I've thought of it many times and how you speak to him and talk about his son. I did have advice when I was able to see a counselor briefly that is just like what you do in writing/speaking to your brother as if he is with you.
She said to me if ''Denny'' was here today right now, what would you say to him? There were so many unresolved issues and no last hug, kiss or I love you son but as of now I have on many occasions talked to him and apologized for the life we lived with his biological father, I've asked for his forgiveness that I could never seem to get help for all of us...I have often thought my son was cheated out of his life because we had been through so much of a nightmare, living with a violent mentally off husband and father, someone who left nothing but damage behind. He is no longer alive and I have asked God why was he allowed to hurt and damage so many lives for so long...I can't seem to reconcile that with anything.
Sue, I got off track here, I really wanted to thank you for reminding me I can talk to my son at any time..I can write him a letter at any time as you did with your brother.
good thoughts & prayers
