Aw baby, I too share the same frustrations....we will do what we gotta do..I will talk to some people in our department. Maybe they know something. I will talk to mom and support her with whatever she wants to do. We gotta be strong, live life, be happy.. We want something we fight for it remember? All the efforts will pay off.. Daddy will never be forgotten.. I love you all

 I am sorry that you and your mom have to go thru this.    This country has very little reguard for our heros it seems.   Their families should be taken care of.  Never give up on this.

Have you tried contacting your Senator or Congressman?  If not try the media, you have nothing to lose.

There has to be someone...the chief...a union rep...an attorney...reporter. Anyone. There must be someone on the board that decides the benefits who is sympathetic to you. That would be a starting point.

Sometimes 'stubborn' really means shy.  Your mother might do this as part of a team effort.  You have to put together a well-organized campaign.  Seek out and use models of similar type that have succeeded.


See if you can create a way to get some media coverage.  Your mother doesn't have to make her statement alone.

Hunny, once I get there I will do some research. I will reach out to people I know on the Federal side in D.C..maybe they can do something. Or I can reach out to my CJ college professors at Sac State. Maybe they have connections. Mom is a very strong woman.. I will talk to her more about it once I see her.. Love you.. xoxo
