As a lot of you are aware, i’ve been having a pretty hard time, recently, trying to cope with the death of my 23-yr-old daughter. i’ve not learned anything ‘new’ in the past couple weeks, regarding her death, and it may actually take six months or more to get any actual answers (due to the med-examiner’s office). With that being said, i’d contacted the social services of the county she lived in, so i might get some reassurance regarding the care of my grandson. i received the letter, the other day, saying they found no reason to investigate. So, i forwarded the information to the detective, who answered my message yesterday, saying he’d been basically told the same thing, and he even had pictures and other information i don’t. He did tell me he’d keep me informed, if/when he finds out anything. i feel like i’m gonna have to stay on Gabe’s father to make sure he takes care of Gabe, in all aspects, though. i know he’s living with his parents and they all love my grandson. But, as many of you already know, just loving someone does not get things done. i wouldn’t be surprised if they all think i’m just a crazy ole lady, due to the stories they might’ve heard from my ex/his parents….but, that’s OK, too. In my experience, sometimes it’s better for people to be afraid of what you might do and act like they should….behave, anyway. On a different, brighter note, while i was doing one of my searches, i found another heart-lifting moment. On the taekwondo site, where my son is an instructor, he was the one in their ‘Feature Friday’ for today….It’s a shame that i have to find out things the way i do, but at least i’m seeing recent pics of my son and seeing/learning more about his adult life. He actually led that group of kids for several gold medals, as well as a silver one, in the state championships, last week. Plus, he wants to join the Air Force. i know he’s also working and taking classes, now, so it all warms my heart. One of my hopes is that Petey will be able to spend some quality time with Gabe and help him grow into a healthy young man, as his nephew.
