1. Opal Mahaffey -- Happy Birthday! December 7th. I do hope that you are having a GREAT birthday today. If I had an address for you, I would have sent a card and a gift, days ago. I wish you well, I truly do. I imagine you probably have a lot of gray hair by now, and you're not the type to dye to in an attempt to hold onto youth by hiding Time's truth. ;)

2. Michaila Mahaffey -- Happy Birthday my baby girl all grown up! I miss you so much! I have some recent pictures of you, and my gold you're amazing. I'm so proud to be your father; and you are so smart! I love you, and I hope that December 10th is a good day for you. I wish that I had you address so I could send you gifts.... I want to be a part of your life. All of you....

3. Shylynn Mahaffey -- Happy Birthday my little clone! You look so much like your mother, but ... I still see myself in you too. I love you, and I miss you so much! I wish that I could be in your life, that I could write to you, call you, help you with ANYTHING I can. Maybe when you're older, you'll have some questions for me, or want to meet me again. But, Time is passing us by, and I'd like you to know not just me, but all of your siblings. Your little brother Collin wants to meet you! He's asked me questions about you recently. We are family. December 19th is a very special day....

4. Jaime Mahaffey -- Happy Birthday! Hello mid-thirties, right? I hope that December 19th is a spectacular day for you, and I hate that I'm not there to rub icing in your face. :O I know you've been through a LOT, and things are like a roller coaster at times; but, know that you have my support in whatever you do, and I am thankful to have you back in my life. I'm proud of our son! He is awesome: he really is me and you wrapped up in one bundle, with his own unique spin on personality. I love all of you.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. As for my hair it’s still as dark as ever. Admittedly I do have a stray grey here and there but nothing too obvious. I would say I’ve aged well no one ever believes I’m 40 and a grandmother. My grudges are simply that you’ve made me to be a bad person. As you said your mother didn’t approve of me not because my ethnicity but because of who I was. I suppose it’s good she’s never met my children because they are so much like me it’s scary and I’m sure she’d hate them too. You talk as though your paramours were more deserving of your love than me. I wasted my youthfulness on a man who couldn’t see me through his lusting over other women. Who couldn’t see that I would’ve walked to the ends of the earth for. A girl who gave up her dreams to follow yours. I remember what it was 23 years after first hearing it. “A nice house in the country with a couple of kids playing in the yard with a cat. I’ll have a sports car in the garage and you’ll have a big truck” I remember thinking that it sounded nice and I loved you so much. I will never care to meet Jaimie and my children care not to meet her or her offspring. It is what it is. You may have been taken away from the other children but you walked away from mine. They know that and I’m sorry I couldn’t protect them from that pain.
