Thank you family and community, Dillan Ray

Dear Mom,


Thank you for putting up with me while I grew up. I know that I wasn’t an easy kid to raise. Especially since I don’t talk about or express my feelings or anything so when something is wrong with me you can’t really help. It doesn’t ever seem like I really care about the things you and dad do for me but I do more than I will ever say. I can’t really go into depth about how it impacted my childhood sense. I really don’t remember a huge part of it. With that said things have stuck to me that I know for a fact would not if I would have had anyone else as my parents.

One thing I need to do throughout is just how much credit you deserve from putting up with the relationship with me and Tara. If that can even be called one I can’t remember a time from being a kid where we were arguing or where I wanted to leave home or move somewhere else because of her but you put up with and handled it better than most people probably would have. I know that if my kids acted like that I would kick them both out. I don’t have the temperament for something like that. 

The last thing I want to thank you for is my pickiness. I’m not easy to feed at all. There are a lot of things that our family eats that I just can’t stand. With that said you found a way around it and I never went hungry even if y’all cooked the nastiest food you made sure I had something I would eat. Even now that I have left childhood an am entering adulthood there and still many things I probably will never eat but I have to say you made it work and I am so thankful, but you know me I probably will never say this in person but thank you for everything, I sure will miss it when I’m moved out and supporting myself.



Your son,
