I was going through old posts today and re-read this one from father’s day 4 years ago. Rarely seeing his son because no one took him resulted in his son saying, “But I don’t know him. ” Of course he doesn’t. NO ONE would take him. Only me when  could fly down to Texas from Pa. I hope when both Jamie’s meet when he gets out Of prison, when his son is 17, they can make up for lost time.


I sit and think a lot. I sit and think about how life will be when I get home, wherever that is. A lot of this has been frustrating. Father’s day was real hurtful for me. It was on a weekend. I didn’t hear from or see Megan with Jamie, or from anyone else, either. I was hoping that since it was a weekend that she’d bring my son. Oh well, it wasn’t a surprise to me. And now Jamie just had his birthday. 8 years old. It hurts like hell that I didn’t get to see him on his birthday. I’m having something made for him. I spent everything I had left to get it done. It’s still not finished. Would you call him please and tell him I did not forget him? Tell him I love him and happy birthday. I wrote him a letter would you send it to him? I sold my food to get a stamp to send this letter to you.

(Jamie’s letter) Guess who? Yes it’s me, Daddy. First I want to say I’m sorry this is so late. I have never forgotten about you. Not did I forget about your birthday. I’m getting something made for you. You will like it when you see it. I love you Jamie. I will always love you.

So happy birthday from a father to his son. I will always love you no matter what. Life is hard but we’re blessed to have it. We’re blessed to have each other. Strong faith will always keep us together. Even if I’m not home, believe, my love is so strong!! No one can break our chain of love we have for each other and that I have for you. I know it hurts, me not being home, but know that I think about you all the time. I didn’t forget your birthday and never will.

What did you do for your birthday? I hope you had lots of fun!! If I was there we would have lots of stuff to do together. Movies, swimming, basketball, football, fishing. Lots of stuff. I couldn’t be there with you because of a poor choice I made a long time ago and I’m sorry. Making a poor choice will hurt your life, son. So be sure to live life in a positive way. Stay away from trouble, drugs and stupidity. Nobody means you any good if they are trying to get you to do wrong. Stay in school and pay good attention. Work hard for what you want. I did not do that and that is why I’m in jail. Listen to me son, nothing is worse than having your freedom taken away. Please stay away from trouble. Pay close attention to your education.

I love you always, Daddy

  1. omg always leaves me so sad. i realize this is probably not a administration that will listen to pleas for reform, yet one never knows. We really need a mass movement. Many children and families affected as well as the fathers. Be strong for Jamie.

    1. Unfortunately no. The US always put out the propaganda that we were the good guys who offered aid to countries when they needed it, but it always came with strings attached because they had something we wanted,. But the admin in control today is upfront about who they care about – and that is, the rich white man. Screw everyone else. It is revolting. 12 years ago when prison issues crossed my path because of Jamie I knew it was what I needed to get involved with. Even if I only helped one person it would have far reaching effects in time. I’ve talked to and encouraged many others in prison. I have hopefully helped more. Even if they did commit a crime – most of us have on some level – they shouldn’t be kicked to the curb for the rest of their lives. If they are mentally ill then get them help. If more people cared about others, it sounds cliche’ – but this would create a better world to live in. Thanks for coming and reading. I know it is hard for me to get back to as many blogs as I’d like and still be able to write, but I try.

    2. I think this last thing – taking away and losing the children helped open up more people’s eyes about how callous Trump is. How could he think so low of these children to not care about the effect on their lives being ripped from their parents. That made more people sit up and think. But it is still amazing about how many people really didn’t care and found ways to justify his actions. What kind of people are they that would condone that. Those people need to experience what they went through that would cause them to run for fear of being killed. There is truth to “The law of cause and effect” or if you are Christian, “You reap what you sow” You can’t believe in some of the Bible’s teaching and forget the ones you don’t like. I am Buddhist. The teaching is the same in both faiths.
