Thank you for your help in getting my blog on the blogsite. It matters to me any time I can possibly reach or talk about my sons. I just hope one day my sons can see my blog and read it themselves. All my sons I feel the same way about. I have tried to be the best dad I can be for a knuckle head. I have made some major setbacks in my life. Along the way, I somehow found time to have some of the greatest kids ever. I still remember when I was the first to hold them after they were born and how happy I was then. Even now when I think of them I feel that same feeling. I do not think it ever changes. Most of my wisdom has come through hard times I have passed through. I just hope to be able to pass it along one day to my sons. I just mainly, like you said, want them to know I am here for them always. That there is nothing they cannot ask me. I will be honest. They deserve that. I just want the best for them and I know they are doing good. They are my boys...

One of the best things I can do for them is keep myself moving forward without thinking of negative things. They need me and one day when they show up, I want to have the love only a father can give them, whether we are all grown or not. I strive to do the best I can for them. I write them all the time. I don't know if they get the letters but that is not my part. I don't need unnecessary mental problems. I got their address and I write to it. I do not hear back but I don't think that is on them. I know that today I have the strength to write anyway. The letters never come back so someone is getting them. Smile. I am sure that it is hard being the parent out there.

I am divorced from my wife going on 14 years or 15. My kids were all babies then. I just got locked up this time in 2008. So I know that this time I did a major crime. So it had to be hard for them once they heard what I did and no telling what all they heard as I was on the run from the law. I don't know if they knew but I am sure they did.

I had them all the summer of 2008. We had so much fun and I did all kinds of stuff with them. I guess now my ex who is remarried feels it may be best if I don't write on or nothing. Of course she has never said this, I just get it from I never get answers to my mail. I have to understand that too if she feels that way, I do not have to like it. I can accept it as part of my consequences. I just hope when they get older they remember old dad. Maybe they will see the blog and see I have not forgot about them. Of course I will keep writing to them also. What can it hurt? Anyway, I am glad you saw something in what I wrote. There is not a day goes by I don't think of them. I miss them and love them very much. I regret pulling that trigger more and more. That is all in the past as I have left that to past. I will continue to learn and try to be a better man and a dad. Thanks again for the time.

Sincerely, Guy

Guy sorry to see you in this situation. Sucks to see your ex acting like that too. Stay strong man. It looks like your doing the right thing and finding comfort in the lord. I really hope that you have turned away from that group of people that got you in there and the reason you are in AD-SEG. I found this blog by googling your name. Pretty cool. I wonder about how your doing sometimes. I'm doing alright, I've been out a year as of yesterday and am going back to school at Angelina College in Lufkin. I'll check back on this sight to see if you ever write back. Praying for you brother. Tell Sonny Reeves I said what's up if you ever get around him
