I’m sorry it has been so long son . Just trying to move along and stay sane at this point . Work is work and the same old daily . Jaden and the boys came over a couple weeks ago and stayed the night and then Daisy went back to Wichita with her . Your truck is almost done and I’ll put some pics up to show the progress . Donnie tore that bitch down to the bare skeleton and built it from the ground up . You are going to be so proud !! We can’t wait to get her back home . Jae had her pacemaker put in last week and she is doing good . Daisy went over and stayed with her and took careof her for you . We went to Hutch last weekend a had a cookout with Traci and Carlos and some of the boys. I miss you so frickin much Jake … I can’t ever explain to someone who hasn’t felt the pain or heartbreak of losing a child how I am feeling . My heart literally aches somedays and I have to just remember you are there and wouldn’t want to see me cry or stressed out . Thank you for the motivation . I talk to yu all the time and I wish you could answer but I do see the signs you show me that you are around . I love you Jake . I’ll see you again .

The field is all grown over and ready for the next season as if nothing had ever happened . The memorials are all still there as reminders of all of the friends and family that miss you and have come to visit . The scenery there is so peaceful and the golden wheat field that is protected by a guard of strong trees watching over the land . The last time I was there I looked around and searched for something familiar to make me feel close to you and after a long and hard look I realized that nothing on that dirt road or in that field was ever going to bring you back and you were already home with us and will always be . I find the most comfort when I see the coins you leave and the birds that are on the wires and when I walk by your pictures . I love talking about you and to hear your name mentioned in a crowd . All of your friends have all been amazing to us and hve stepped in to be sure Daisy is ok and protected . I have watched the videos of you a hundered times just to hear your voice and I am doing my best to help other people with your story . You truly are an inspiration to alot of us and I could not be more proud of you . I swear I have heard your voice and I can’t wait to hear it again . Some say that humans have a sixth sence and I truly believe that now . I know you are around me all the time and I can’t help but laugh whenever I see things that I know you are involved in . Daisy does a very good job of folding my mirrors in whenever she walks by them . I am getting stronger everyday and I can totally handle this with you be my side and I thank you for the strength . They say time heals all but they lied , it doesn’t heal it just get more tolerable on certain days and other days still take my breath away . I will without a doubt figure out what to do next and in the mean time stick by me kid and lets do this together . I love you and keep making your presence known and when you see me struggle put your hand on my shoulder and I’ll know that you are there . Fly high my boy and I’ll see you again . Love, mom

Hi Jake ! Today it has been 3 months and it sucks . not a single day goes by that I don’t think about you on the regular . So much has been going on that I need to tell you about . Project Kaitlyn Rebuild is under way !! Uncle Donnie has her right not putting her back together mechanically and he just shakes his head wondering what the hell you have done . She is getting rid of her black eye and the headlights you saved to my favorites should be here any day . Daisy and Wyatt when to Ottawa Ks. today to pick up a new bed since someone(not mentioning names ) smoked a mailbox with the ass end flare . She is getting smoked taillights and a different hood . Don’t worry the grill is staying ! Now about that front bumper … for now it will be color matched and the tow mirrors too . eventually she will get a ranch hand bumper . She is going to be so bad ass son. Everyone will know it is Kailtlyn , your flags will fly for her maiden voyage home . The bike is underway and almost ready for primer and paint . We have the graphics ready to go on and Carlos cut down the exhaust she sound sweet ! Shes a runner . Jaden and the boys are good . still in Wichita . Daisy is still hanging with wyatt and she seems to be really happy so don’t worry ,all of your boys have approved of him . Paige is still in Hutch and Spence is hiking alover colorado it seems . We went on a vacation there and I will tell you all about that another time . Your dad and grandpa have been fishing fools and have the pond pretty well stocked and your boat is docked and ready at all times . Monty and I are good and carry on the “hows your week” regularly .We see your name all over Hutch on truck windows and cars everywhere . The nice dark burn out in front of the house was starting to fade so Tyler Deforrest came and left some fresh ones for us . I miss you so frickin much I can’t explain it . I see all of the signs you leave me to let me know your are around me at all times and I can’t help but smile everytime . anyway … your my favorite and I love you son

Hey you , So…. Jae suprised us yesterday wit a visit !! you already know she was out at our place and had a nice long chat . It was good catching up and laughing again . Daisy was super excited to see her . We are hoping to plan another short weekend trip soon and let Jezebel stretch her legs . No news on the truck yet still working on it . Sadly we are letting the ram charger go since we dont ever use it , looking at couple new skis instead . Not much new going on just working this week and probably make a run over to hutch this weekend . School started back up today and of course she was not excited about that but she took it like a champ ! I have been looking at puppies lately and OMG I have found some cute ones but I’m debating on rather I want that committment again or not or if the puppy fever will pass and I’ll get over it . Not much else I guess so for today remember you are my favorite and I love you .
