Letter To My Mom

Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)

Dear Mom,

It's been 4 years since you left this earth of ours, but we're both saints. You're a saint in light, & I'm a saint in life (i like that title). There are so many things to do between now & the future to come.

Izabella is getting so tall, & she misses you so much. Chelsea works hard each & every day. Brianna is graduating high school, & she got accepted into 4 different out-of-state colleges. Athena is doing better, & she's full time, now. She likes it. Paulina is doing her best & she's back at Blockbuster.

I'm currently in school to be a sign language interpreter. I plan on furthering my education to where I can be a Special Ed Teacher. I know you are so proud of me & our family. You can say I'm your little woman at twenty-three. Grandma is doing good & I talk to her on a regular basis. I'm content with that. I talk to my father, & I have another little brother. He is the cutest little boy. His name is JayThunder Lee Williams II. I also have another little sister named Alisa Marie Ione Denise Johnson-Williams & she's a cutie pie (just like me). I love you & I miss you. I miss you now more than ever because you didn't get to see all the things I've done in church & with church. I'm saddened because you won't get to see me graduate college. You're sorely missed by many relatives & friends.

Love always, Your Little Woman,
