    Tomorrow will be a year. I wrote this newspaper begging them to help me. My son was in danger. He is dead now. No one heard me. A year and a half I wrote letters….no one heard me. It’s hard forgiving….but I haven’t a choice. I forgive those who disregarded my cries…and I forgive whomever killed my son. Duke is an angel. I love you son
