Dear Jason,
There is something you need to understand. Sometimes real men get scared. Sometimes even I get scared. Sometimes… When I think of your future, I get terrified. I think of all the things that could go wrong.
I want you to know that I fight everyday to make sure you have the best life possible. To make sure you have a happy healthy home life. To make sure that you are surrounded by people who love you. I want you to grow up knowing, without a doubt, that your parents love you, will protect you, and want nothing but the best for you.
I think what frightens me most is the thought that something may happen to me. That I may not be there for you.

Though if something should happen, know that everything will still be alright.
