I wonder if you’re posting this while laying in bed with Andrew 🤔 you broke my father even farther down and when the time comes you will pay for it. I hope you are haunted by the disgusting things you did.

Billy no one knows the depth of our relationship or how close we became since the loss of Mother & Tim. You always said to me “you’re my big sister” during the many times we struggled with our reality and you hoped I could make it better. Then Dee became an important part of the support, we dubbed ourselves the ”3 Musketeers” The envelope you sent to me last year saying not to open until you die, I never anticipated opening. I did as you asked and opened with Dee this morning. Your letter brought me to tears, we certainly have shared so much since those Navy days! Dee was overcome, also. We were overwhelmed by your generosity; the insurance policies were not necessary. This does not replace our 3-way talks. We have decided how to use the money. I’ll be creating a tribute to your memory and our love when I return to Virginia. May you rest in peace in God’s love, your big sister Lynn & adopted big sister Dee
