Dear Mother

I appreciate your wishes for the time we had together. After you died, I have had nowhere to turn. I’ve been homeless since the day you died. Now, things are turning around and I’m doing much better.

Through the Grace of God I have wished to move further and further with my life. I used to have a job at the Hilton Hotel, making about $500 a week. I was doing well at that job for six months, but I had an incident on the job. I fell and fractured my wrist; it’s still very painful and hasn’t been right since. That’s how I became disabled.

I’ve been in and out of institutions my whole life, but I thank God I’m doing real good now and looking to the future.

I appreciate everybody from Bread of the City. I appreciate everything to this day.
