I have been a fan of Jackie's for around 20 years and like Jackie I am still a kid at heart. At 43 I need to be because I have a special son with multiple disorders and every day is a struggle with him, trying to do what is best for him. His name is William or as I call him JC and he is 7 years old. William is very smart in some areas as he is borderline autistic. He has cerebral palsy and mental retardation and ADHD and many others problems. He loves Jackie so very much. Every day he's doing his kung fu on someone and singing Jackie's songs. Since William was born I've been singing Ming Ming Bai Bai to him because he couldn't sleep well and I had to give him breathing treatments every 2 hours around the clock. I didn't know what the song meant but William showed me. He was 5 when he told me what the song meant! Now me, I can't hold a tune, but to William I guess I can! He still gets in my lap and says, "Momma sing me Jackie's song." So I do until he falls asleep. And also when he wants comforting I sing it to him. When he heard Endless Love his voice just starting singing all the words. I was amazed! He loves it and does it very well, I might add.
I do not know one day to the next about William. Let
me just say the doctors have tried everything and there's nothing else they
can do for him. I do not know what the future holds for him but I will never
give up on him. In May I am going to finally get my dream of meeting Jackie
and since I have glaucoma I know I will probably never have the chance to
do this again. I have sold many things just to be able to go but I know it
is worth it just to see him face to face and see him smile. That to me is
his best feature, I might add. I also want to thank Jackie for helping me
to be a better person to do what is right and stand up for what I believe
is right. Jackie has filled my house with love and though he has never been
here I feel like he has. He's William's angel and mine. When I think I can't
take anymore I just listen to him sing and that calms me. So thank you Jackie
and you will always be a part of our family and always in our prayers.
