Dear Daddy,

Since I never got to talk to you or have any kind of relationship with you the memories I have of me watching you ride in those rodeo's as a little girl will be in my heart forever. I will never forget your smile because I wake up and see if every day. Me and Christopher look just like you. Although I have had a lot of anger toward you for many many years, now I can't help but feel heart broken and confused. I will spend the rest of my life with a lot of questions as to why things happened the way they did or why you were never here. I will pray that God helps me to find those answers today and give me peace in my heart for the first time in a long time. You should see the person your son has become. He is the greatest person I know. He is a hard worker and would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. He just recently bought a house and got married to a beautiful women who also has the name Brittany. How funny is that? Me on the other hand am still figuring my life out...Although I didn't know you very well, I'm guessing I get that from you. I know in time it will all come together and work itself out. I pray that you are in heaven and can finally see the wonderful people we have become. I will close this door today and it will never be reopened again. I will finally be at peace knowing where your body is laid to rest.

I only knew Chris for a few weeks, but he was here and helped me go through some troubles I was having. He was so kind to me and was always smiling no matter what. I wish I would have had the chance to know him longer. I am going to miss him so much. I am thinking of and praying for his family and friends, especially Ms. Mary.
