Thought that we had better write you a letter after all the things that have happened lately just to let you know that we still care and think about you heaps every day. It really was sad for us when Gazelle and Deja left and went back to Auckland and back up north we where really looking forward to yous staying with us and living with us here in Hastings.
Nessa and me wanted to help yous get back on your feet and start living a better life, going back to church and things like that. It was choice having them here with us looked like things were finally looking good for yous, Gazelle started a course and was enjoying it as far as we knew and Deja was at school with Soul and Shalloe. We hoped that things would work out that you would like to come and stay with us here in Hastings. Haven?t heard from Gazelle yet since she left about two weeks ago know I think?
Been talking to Mum just about every week and she says that she enjoys getting your letters and you sound like you have changed, we noticed the same things to when you wrote to us as well. I hope you got that book of Mormon that we sent to you. It was good to hear that you had given up smoking or stopped or something like that. Was talking to John yesterday he asked how you were doing and I said good as far as I knew and that you were still in Wanganui as far as I knew. He wants to send you some stuff so he said that he would send it to us and we would get it to you. If you are still in Wanganui send us a visitors form so that we can come and visit you before you get released, We might come down the weekend some time before you get released. Do you get released on the 7,8,9 of March or something like that so we will try to come on the first weekend of March to see you before you go back up north.
Aaron and them are doing alright was talking to him the other day, they seem to sound like their enjoying their time over in Aussie now that Aarons is working and getting some money. John was working but has finished cause he said it takes him three hours to travel to work and three hours to get back sometimes even longer at nights, so he stays home now and Jackie goes to work while he stays home and looks after the kids.
Im getting sick of working with this fella at work he is a bliknkin idiot the fella just cant stop thinking about himself all day. He always has a better story than yours, and he always knows more than he thinks, I wanted to punch his head the other day. So I am trying to find me another job cause I cant stand working with him. Its choice job but I cant work with the idiot.
Nessa is teaching at Suedes school she works hardout but she really likes it cause it keeps her busy. Soul is really clever for his age, he is the cleverest in his school, and is still a cheeky boy. Shalloe is getting bigger and she is clever as well. Suede is shy as at his school hardly talks, his teacher said that he has to talk more but he really likes school and has heaps of pakeha mates, no Maori mates he said. Sequoia is 6 months now and shes teething so she cries heaps at moment, all night but Apart from that she is a good baby and she is at school as well now that Nessa is teaching at school. Nessa has 8 months to go and she will be a qualified teacher
Well as I was saying earlier I hope things all work out for yous. I had a talk to Gazelle be fore she left and she said that she was going to wait talk to you and see what you wanted to do . This is not all doom and gloom for yous but the choice is your guys to make. The things is yous have been through It before so try and work things out.
Well I think I have written enough and hope to see you in the first weekend of March. If you need anything write, ring collect whatever and we will help you we want to help you. We love you very much bro and we miss you.
