Many of you know the situations we have found ourselves in over the past years. The trials and tribulations have been, at times, seemingly insurmountable, but somehow we keep pushing through … and it is only by the grace of the Almighty who holds us tightly and friends and family who continue to support and lift us up with encouragement and prayers. At times, I, myself, thought I could endure no more. It is amazing how many tears the human body can produce, the depths of the heart wrenching sobs that seep through the layers of walls we have built for ourselves and the inability to think or make rational decisions when once we felt so capable of almost anything. I am reduced to rubble. Each day is like a day lived before, remember that old Groundhog Day movie? Yep, that’s what it’s like.  Over and over and over…no end in sight.

With 3 of the 4 people in my immediate family gone, left alone, widowed, it seems useless to go on. Losing a child who was destined for great things, losing a husband months later and dealing with the loss of my oldest due to an insane system of ‘justice’ … yes, my heart sometimes fails me. But even as tears again sneak out, even as my heart feels ripped and torn to shreds, I know that there is still beauty, there is still hope. HOPE. Hope springs eternal and His word is true, there is more to this life than this existence. A good friend of mine told me when I lost both my son Jason, and my husband Jim that ‘God is outside of time; we live in this time realm. But one day, when ALL time is reconciled, we will see our loved ones face to face’. Knowing that helps ease the pain of their missing presence. While I will, once again, see my beloved Jason and hubby, there is still much that can be accomplished for my oldest son, Jim.

The loss of his presence in my life has been devastating, not just to me, but to his wife Cheryl and his six precious daughters. So, as a family we are rising up and saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We pray that you will consider joining us as we petition the President of the United States to grant him an early release. While many will scoff and continue to revel in their self-righteousness and level out accusations, just as many of you have witnessed the good fruit that has sprung from our tree. We implore all of you to join us in this endeavor. Now is not the time to be silent.

It has been 3 1/2 years now and we feel the time has come to petition our President to consider Jim’s release. In order to accomplish this and for our efforts to reach the Oval Office, we need your help! Everyone in your family over the age of 13 will be able to take part in this endeavor.

If you are willing to stand up and help a brother in the body, a family in need, please consider signing up for the updates on how all this will come about. Just sign up below and we’ll send out the updates as things become finalized concerning the actual signing of the petition and the sending of the letters to the President. If you know of anyone that would like to help our family – please share this message!

Spread the truth!
