“Well, if it looks like an Eagle and soars like an Eagle, THEN IT MUST BE AN EAGLE!!!!!”

September 5, 2022
Good Morning babe,
I had the most wonderful conversation with Mom and Dad yesterday. They love you so much and it gives me such inspiration! The family reunion was Saturday and everyone was so supportive and has sent you their love. I didn’t realize how long it had been since I had given an update so I know I kept them on the phone much longer than they had probably anticipated. Wow for me right?!? 😊 I told them how your letter was going to be delayed and they are excited to get it.
I was driving to work today and was surprised to see most of the corn had been processes over the weekend. I knew we were close to fall but I am actually a bit excited that time is passing so quickly. That just means that you will be in my arms that much sooner.
I hope my last letter made you smile as I go through some memories. I know that keeping these memories in my mind has helped me in ways that I could not have imagined. I was thinking of the few weeks after we first met and the text messages that were shared between you and I. This was a topic of conversation this weekend with the kids as I teased them all of “spell check” and abbreviations. I think N got my jokes and my story a little bit more than the rest because he was the one living with me at the time and remembered a little of who I used to be.
Do you remember how I told you that your words in these texts cemented my appeal for you. LOL. You know I have never been much of a “phone” person. I still laugh to myself as I hear you say, “You know, the phone goes with you!” as I find myself sitting in one place imagining that my phone is still attached to the wall requiring me to be trapped in one spot until the phone call is over. Hahaha. Your willingness to communicate via text at that time was crucial and you didn’t even know it. I found myself so enamored by your complete sentences. Your accuracy of punctuation. I was communicating with a man who actually used verbs and adjectives so precisely. LOL!
Everyone at the table was laughing as I told the story but N was awkwardly laughing as he was rolling his eyes. He is the only one who had to live with the same thing I had to endure as my Mom and Dad would always correct our grammar with each and every sentence. I sarcastically teased him as he rolled his eyes because I too knew how lucky he and I both are that “our parents” forced us to be educated in proper English. Hahaha – I’m guessing you had the same lessons in your upbringing.
This brings me to my conversation with your Mom and Dad regarding how you must stand out in so many ways where you are. This should make you proud! Please don’t ever let your time in there extinguish your pride! “If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck!” That’s “their” motto. Well, if it looks like an Eagle and soars like an Eagle, THEN IT MUST BE AN EAGLE!!!!! There was a time in our Justice system where this meant something and just because our local system is misguided and finds themselves fighting the wrong fight, it does mean something in the overall scheme and this is something I don’t want you to ever forget. I continue to pray that your wings are stronger than ever when you leave that place. I’m actually counting on it!
You are, have always been and will always be a person that people look up to. Someone that people follow with absolute confidence. Your line of work forced you and your intellect to be a catalyst in life saving systems and those who worked with you relied on this. Your soul and energy created a feeling of trust within anyone who found themselves in your presence. I hope you know how unique that is. I have watched you for years proving your merit for this trust which is admirable because it just came natural to you, but I need you to know that from what I have always witnessed, the way you lived your life just maintained the trust. You were a leader because you didn’t have to generate the trust by recruiting. The recruits always found you by droves and you sustained, nurtured and strengthened it! This is a type of greatness that is a gift from God and you have it. Your honesty and integrity will endure no matter where you are. Use it. Cultivate it. Preserve it no matter who tries to take it away from you.
The respect I have for you is immeasurable. The pride I have in being your wife is constant. You do not deserve to be where you are and yet, you inspire me in the way you persevere. Although I find it so difficult to breath out here without you, I continue and it is because of you. I believe with every ounce of my being that it is only a matter of time before someone with the ability to make this right falls upon our story. It will be your history that will stand out impenetrable just as it should have in the beginning. I have complete faith in this. The man you have always been will work in your favor as it always has.
Thank you for always making me smile. Thank you for always showing me the best me. Thank you for always bringing out the best in our children. Thank you for being the man that our children want to make proud. Thank you for always teaching our family real morals and always guiding them towards a path of decency in all they do. You are the absolute definition of a great man. I love you!!!!   
Your Forever Wife,
~Nicole

This Is Not Easy

Publishing my personal letters to my husband is not easy. If I wasn't fighting such a devastating fight, I wouldn't even have to consider it. But my goal is for you, the reader to know who we are. To know that we are very real, caring and loving individuals who are facing an unbelievable nightmare. So, here you go - my heart on my sleeve.

His transfer just took place on Wed. July 27th and my goal will be to support him with daily letters. We're just getting started!
