Tommy Joe -
With each passing hour, my heart withers from your absence. Oh, if only our folks could see beyond the silly crimes they have done to each other, and know that the only true crime is hate. Hate consumes, and I fear in these dimming times that hate will take hold of more than just our families.
If they realized this then we could, at long last, be together. It is for that day I hope, and for that day I live.
Your love, Maybell
