Saturday, December 14, 2013: Good morning Sam. At 3:11 in the morning I hope you are sound asleep. I have been battling that cold bug that has been going around for the last few weeks. It’s been brutal on some people. So far I have staved off the worst of it, although it’s trying. I don’t need a lot of sleep to keep me going. 6-7 hours is typically OK. I went to bed at 7:30 last night, which might explain my early rise this morning. Or it could be that I can’t seem to turn my brain off. Probably a little of both. I hope that writing you will help.

Today is the 1-year anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. I was extremely sad when the story broke on this day 1-year ago. I listened to an interview of one of the parents of one of the kids recently. She talked about how most parents have video of their kids just because this is what parents do. In hindsight, it’s all a mother has of her lost son’s voice. That got me thinking. If something happened to me, what would you remember about me? Not what Adriana Coronel Tenorio’s (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) family wants you to remember. What do YOU remember? It’s a tough question for someone your age. Luckily, you have this journal. You can go online and see pictures. I will be adding video soon. People have floated the idea around of filming a documentary. We will see how this plays out.

In a couple hours, my alarm will go off. Hopefully I will be able to get some more rest before then. Lourdes was able to get the Notary to chaperon our visits the next couple weeks. This is what keeps running through my mind. It’s been 7-months since Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) and Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global) tried to ambush me and yet nothing has been done about it. Nothing. If I was not living this Sam, I would not believe what has transpired if someone told me. So, only time will tell if there will be a scene at the house today. I LOVE YOU SAM! SEE YOU SOON! KISSES!

[UPDATE]: On this very day was Adriana and Danny Howitt’s (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan) wedding day. We did not know this at the time, after all Adriana is still juggling 2 men at the same time. More importantly, she did not tell anyone or get permission to take Samantha to Puerto Vallarta. She is under strict orders from the court that Samantha cannot leave the Tijuana city limits under any circumstance. The second part of this is the use of the Notary. They hold a special status in Mexico, unlike the United States. Notaries in Mexico have to have law degrees. They bill their time like attorneys too.
