    Dear Davenport’s:Hope y’all had a great X’mas 2012 & that Kilah got lots of X’mas gifts from Santa.I’m sure you’ll have prosperous 2013 in takin’ further care of Kilah to see that she starts speech & physical therapy in the long run.Sorry to hear about your ailing father Kirbi,Who’s in hospice care.Do pray that he’ll stay alive a little longer.As for my late father who died 3 years ago.He had chronic leukemia for 11 years & was treated till his last days.He lies in state at Wingate Cemetary in his hometown Wingate NC.5 miles east of Monroe.He was 76 when he passed away.Miss him real much.So my mother’s widowed & will continue to be with my support in living with her.I also know how heart breakin’ it feels when other children suffer severe abuse as in Kilah’s case.But I’m sure the new law’ll get passed in all 100 counties of NC soon.It’ll take some time for each county to agree on it.So do what y’all gotta do in passin’ the new law.Hope to meet y’all in the future.My church in Weddington supports y’all too.Have a good 2013 & best to Kilah!
