I just wanted to drop a line to you and see how you were doing. I know after Fred’s death you had a real rough time of it. I hope things are going better for you now. How are the kids? I heard that Jamie won a scholarship to an Ivy League school. He always was a smart one, how’s Jessica and her husband? The twins must be getting big and almost ready for school.
I wish we lived closer, but James’ work took him to this one horse town in the middle of nowhere. It’s okay though, the people are genuine and good Christians. Oh by the way, I met a mutual friend of ours, he said to tell you hello and that you are always on his heart and mind. He said he feels sad that you no longer communicate with him and that when you were a young girl you two were inseparable.
Patrice, he really misses you and as he spoke about the days you two spent together – he listening to your dreams and hopes, your fears and sorrows, and comforting you through your darkest moments, I detected tears in his eyes. He even went on to say that when he heard about Fred he rushed to your side, he was there when you got the news, at the wake and funeral – even when you cried yourself to sleep, but you didn’t recognize him.
He said also to tell you, no matter how many times you turn your back on the friendship, he will never leave you or forsake you. His heart is broken, it was evident in the way he spoke of you with such love and devotion, and how his words seemed labored because of the pain he felt over your rejection of him after all the years you two spent together.
Patrice, he said to just tell you that "Jesus wants you back in his life and that it is not complete without you."
Call on him, Patrice. I am sure he can come at a moment’s notice if you ask him to.
With all my love,
