Daniel Everett Coy, my son, my confidant, my wisdom, my strength. My reason for living no matter the length. You were the source of my laughter and so many tears. You brought me so much happiness and too many fears. I watched you grow from a helpless baby to a strong, wonderful young man. I will do my best to honor you, the very best I can. I was there and loved you from the very start and I will always love you with all my heart. As days turn into months that turn into years that pass, I promise you that we’ll find justice at long last.
