Dear Susan, I would like for you to know that I have forgiven Oshea Israel for murdering my son Laramium. This has not been an easy thing for me to do. But it was something that I needed to do. The first step I took to do this was “account and apology”. I needed to take account that Oshea had been involved with gangs and drugs. And, that he got into a fight with my son at a party and shot and killed him. And, I need to apologize for my anger and animosity that I had towards him for doing this violent act. The second step of reconciliation was understanding. I wanted Oshea to understand why I was apologizing and how I felt. Step three for me was seeking an understanding from Oshea of why I was forgiving him for this. I did this by going to the prison to see him and talk to him several times so he could get a better understanding of how I felt. Step four was to affirm a relationship with Oshea which I did by letting go of my anger and animosity for him and to start caring for him like he was my son. Step five for me was to seek an agreement. That we would move forwards together and tell our life story to others and help to support and teach others how to forgive. Your Best friend, Melissa Hess Hello Katie, I am wanting to apologize for the way I have been acting towards you at work and for the miss understanding we have been having.

We really need to do this so we both can understand what each other’s obligations are to one another and to work. I do believe this would help us to be more productive in our work and to get things done in a timelier manner. Also if you need my help at work or don’t understand something please don’t hesitate to
