You don't need to 'want' to be a journalist. You are! I was 'into' your narrative, perhaps because I knew Brenda and Buzz. But this is such a good job!! If you can edit, find a picture of Brenda in her cheerleader outfit. That was Brenda to me. Always young and vibrant!
You know of course, your Jackson will outdo 'brother; Jackson. I'm confident!!
I read about half, will go back for the other half. Right now, I'm hungry!!
Love you!
