Audrey Jackson writes a letter of thanks to all the people who were involved her attempt at freedom,
Louisa Mason, Naomi Cohen, Kendra Williams, Lousiana Sandusky.

This is Audrey Jackson writing. I want all of you to know how much I have appreciated your help over the past several weeks. It has meant more to me than I could ever express.It is not because of anyone's sucess or failure that I am taking the course of action that I plan to. I have just lost my will to live. It seems like I have spent my life fighting for my own and my children's surival. I'm worn out from this and I don't see any reason to keep fighting. I mainly fought for my girls and since they no longer require my care, I see no reason to keep fighting. For the past 10 years all I have been was a wife and mother. Now what do you expect me to do with my life? I was only leaving Mississippi and Jack for my children's safetly.Now my reason for leaving is gone.


Louie, Let me say you NEVER EVER failed me. You did the best you could but the way you were always talking about how busy and overwhelmed you were, I always felt like I was just in your way and a total burden. I hope one day you will realize that you had nothing to do with my failure.  Would it make you feel better if I did not end things now and waited for Jack to get out of prison to finish me off? That is what is going to happen! I can't escape him. Even from prison he has been sending me threatening notes. He has an insider on the hospital staff who is keeping him up to date on my recovery. I'm sure this person has told him everything of my plans to move, the location and everything involved. So, even in California I won't be safe. He knows all about it.


I hope all of you can come to understand why I feel the need to do what I am doing. I have no family left. My parents are both dead and now my children are gone. I don't expect anyone to understand. I know it is unimaginable for a person to want to stop living, but I hope this letter will help everyone understand at least a little bit better.


I hope you know how much all of your help and support has meant to me and my girls. You did suceed in helping my children to a better life than they would have had without you.


Audrey Jackson

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I can't believe you're killing off Audrey. I really liked this character...but I guess I can understand the emotional involvement. :( Still, and all....just found out today my best friend's mother in law died, she and my best friend were extrememly close.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Thank you for writing about Audrey and the heartbreak of abuse, and it's terrible ramifications. The abuse never really goes away, does it?
