Hi everyone! Something new finally. Kade has not said anything in a long while. Sunday there was a wedding. Casey's best friend got married. Casey's picture was setting on a white pillar facing the guests where Alecia was to be given to her groom. During her walk down the aisle with her father, Alecia paused at the picture of Casey and presented her with one single rose with baby breaths. Then her father gave her hand to her groom. I did not go, I could not emotionally face this knowing my daughter would never know a moment such as Alecia had. I also am recovering from surgery. One of my other daughters went and took pictures. It was a nice thing for Alecia to do for her friend who is no longer with us. A couple of days later I rode with Kade and his mom to Walmart. We sat in the car while she ran in to get something. He brought up Casey's death. He then told me he was shot a long, long, long, long time ago. He said he remembers his other mother. We dropped it. This morning after spending the night he was riding home with his mommy. He said he wanted to go to school. He said his other mother had books. Remember he had said his mother "taught lessons." Now he says he knows his other mothers last name. He said "my other mother's last name and other father's last name and my last name was Sherlin; sounds like. Then he said "but that was a long, long time ago before I was born this time." I am going to search for this surname. I will let you know anything I find out. My daughter asked him if he had heard this name on TV and he said no it was my last name. His favorite cousin is down again from Chicago. I am sure he will be telling us more in the next few days.
