Many people call him an old soul even though he is only 26. He has the wisdom and values that so many have turned from. He knows that what's inside is much more important than the outside. He is the true "southern gentleman" that I named him. He has had to fight for his education all the way through, from early elementary up through a junior in college. He is the first to make it that far in our family and he is still fighting for it. He has always battled illness and worse yet, the stigma associated with it. This includes some of his past teachers. Thank goodness he didn't listen, but there were very tough moments. He helps his father take care of me due to my illness and not many young adults would. He has always been my biggest supporter through the 20 plus years of illness. I don't have enough room or words for my praise and thanks for my son, my hero!!!
