Jeryy, I hope you read this and get back to me. Ever since all this occured, I have worried about how you have been doing. I know this has got to be very hard on you. My e-mail is on the other part of this page, so please e-mail me just to let me know that you are okay. I know there are no words I can say to take away the pain, but just know that he is watching over you and knows you love him and always have. Until I hear from you, I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

Jerry, so sorry about your son. Such a tragic accident. I'm not sure I have the correct Jerry Guentensberger but you made reference to Judy so I'm guessing I have the right one, if you used to live in Virginia in the very early 80's. I'm Don's niece. Was looking through some old pictures and found one with you in it so I did an internet search just to see if I could find you or Sabrina and I found this blog. If you are the same person I'm thinking of, please respond on this blog.

You my boy are a jerk.
You need to forgive in your heart and don't hold so much hate. I have no doubt that this man loved his son. With a loud mouth like you around I would have left you also.
One day you will be so sorry for these unfounded remarks you will hate your self.

YOU CAN REACH ME AT [email protected] AND TO LARRY THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT I DID LOVE MY KIDS AND DID NOT GIVE UP MY RIGHTS AS A PARENT EVEN WHEN MY KIDS MOM ASKED ME TO LET JAMES ADOPT THEM. I DON'T KNOW HOW THE LAST NAME CHANGED TO POTTER LEAGALLY BUT I AM LOOKING INTO IT. FOR ALL THE FATHERS, KIDS, AND MOTHERS WHO ARE GOING THROUGH THIS ALSO, I TOTALY UNDERSTAND. ALL THESE YEARS I ROBIN MY KIDS MOTHER WOULD NOT GIVE ME THE ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, OR EVEN LET ME KNOW THE SCHOOLS THEY ATTENDED. I HAVE PAID MY CHILD SUPPORT ALL THESE YEARS EXCEPT FOR THE YEARS I WAS DOWN WITH BACK SURGERIES AND RECOOP TIME. MY CHILDREN HAVE ALWAYS BEEN IN MY THOUGHTS AND THERE ARE ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY, UNFORTUNATLY THEY ONLY GOT HER SIDE.

Hey Jerry and Laurie. How are you guys doing? This blog is so sad. I tried getting ahold of Stephen on myspace, but that all changed when he found out who I was. I am so sorry for all the heartache you guys are going thru. I know we have all made mistakes, but we grow up. Laurie, I am going to be emailing you. I know we have had our problems in the past, but we are adults now. Hope to hear from you soon.
