Miss you alot sometimes. I know you can't see or hear this even if I were to say it aloud. But I do miss you and love you. Look around for Randy. But im sure you have already found him. Its been hard losing Randy. Extremely hard!!! We were finally able to lay him to rest today. We burried him right next to you. He died on his birthday of all days. I found that wierd because you would always talk about how you thought it would be "cool" to die on your birthday. "That way you will have lived an even amount of days." I always found that fascinating because of how much you would talk about it. Well guess what. One of your sons did. And it aint cool. It just makes things harder. I love you dad you were a great father until you started using drugs all those years ago. Dont get me wrong you were still a good father after. But you would always choose drugs. They became more important than anything to you. You wanted to do what you wanted to do instead of what you should have been doing. And I would never blame you for what has happened to my baby brother. But, had you stepped up, and done what you were supposed to do and be a good example. Especially after we moved back from North Carolina. Had you not exposed us and introduced us the that lifestyle and had been there as a father....been there for us when we needed you for guidance, wisdom, advice and direction in those crucial years of our lives. Maybe, just maybe. You and Randy would still be here. You...not sure, maybe. Randy...would most definitely still be here. Randy was clean when you let him start staying with you and grandma to take care of grandpa. Which he did a heck of a job doing! But you used and manipulated him by using drugs and alcohol. I dont think I will ever forgive you for that to be honest. I love you dad but what you did to Randy was wrong in every way. Like I said though. I can't completely blame you. Randy made his own choices in life. He knew the risk. You either die or end up in jail. When you died everyone was so quick to blame Randy for what happened. When he wasn't the bad guy at all. You screwed up his sobriety so you could get high and have someone do all the stuff you didnt want to do anymore as far as taking care of grandpa. Which he never complained, griped, or would even show an attitude. He always was willing to help you. And you took advantage of that. I'm so mad at you right now!!! Why did you have to do it. And then give some to your son and get him addicted again? I can't believe you! I love you dad but like I said. IF! (And its not likely)I'm able to find it in my heart to forgive you for what you did and how you treated my baby brother, Its going to be a very, very, very, long time before that happens. Your son is dead. Randy was doing so good until you started using him. Shame on you dad. I do hope you are in heaven. You scared me alot as far as your relationship with God. But I am pretty sure you are there and I do want to see you again one day. But your death was not a matter of HOW you would die, but WHEN you were going to die from an overdose. Because us boys got to the point where we expected it from you. We knew how our father, who we looked up to, loved, and adored was going to die. The wages of sin is death. You know that. Not only did you overdose multiple times but, was driving drunk and high and killed a very young man. YOU KILLED SOMEONE!!! And basically got a slap on the wrist. And I have suspicions about other things that God might have wanted you to pay for. You honestly you did this to yourself and led Randy back down the wrong path. You should have been a better example for us. You failed us by doing what you did to us. You failed yourself. Taking us by bootleg houses and trap house in Portsmouth everyday after school. And leaving us there for hours while you went to go score. Offering heroin to us as teenagers. Wtf is wrong with you. You were molding Randys death all the way back then. When you chose heroin, pills, and alcohol over you wife and children. You ruined our family. I love you dad. I really do but I don't think I can ever forgive you for this. The way I see it. You have an extreme amount of responsibility in Randy's death. You selfishness for drugs and your manipulation is what I see as the initial first step of all the steps leading up the Randy's death. You used him and put him in a bad place of suffering in many ways. Especially since you passed. Randy was suffering on so many levels. And God saw that and decided his child shouldn't suffer any longer. Now he isn't homeless sleeping in his car, now He has a mansion. He isn't wondering how will he eat, he is feasting on heavenly food. He isn't on drugs anymore, he has a glorified body. And most importantly he isn't alone or feel like he was alone or unloved. That's how I will find my peace about all this. But had you not been such a narcissistic manipulater and actually cared about your son he wouldn't have been in those bad spots. You failed us dad 🙁I have to go. I'll talk to you again soon. I love you.
