  • Special Valentines

    Mother - Kendra Wheelington
    by – Jessica Atha, Jonesville

    My mother, Kendra Wheelington, is my special Valentine. She is my best friend in the whole world and never fails to be there for me, no matter the circumstances.

    My mom has overcome a lot of obstacles in her life and faced a lot of hardship, but she never let that get her down.

    Her mother (my grandmother) passed away in her forties after she lost the fight with brain cancer.

    My Mommy and Daddy loves me so much. They snuggle me up and tickle me so good that I don’t have to laugh.

    They play board games with me. They play Wii with me. They pay attention to me even when my little baby brother is crying for his bottle.

    They take me to Chuck E. Cheeses and the mall.

    When I go to Granny’s to stay all night and I miss them and want to go home, they come and get me.

    Brother – Don Johnson

    I think Don Johnson should be a special Valentine. He is my big brother. There may be 18 years between us in age, but we are very close.

    My dad passed away when I was in high school. Don is the one who bought my wedding gown, and he is also the one who gave me away on my wedding day.
