Merry Christmas, handsome Vumilia. We heard the furangels sing to us at the magical hour of midnight on Christmas Eve. Mama Cinder's choir practice was perfect...all the Christmas hymns you furangels sang to us were beautiful. We enjoyed the loving voices of you furangels sending your musical gifts of love from Paradise meadow down to us who love and miss you so much. Thank you for singing to us. We give you these flowers to show our appreciation for your precious gift of love sent to Mum and to us. We leave you our love, special little man Vumilia

Hello, handsome Vumilia. We came to deliver this Christmas tree for you. Grandpa asked us to make sure every member of our Paradise meadow family had a Christmas tree for their home in the meadow. See all the trees on the wagon Char is pulling. Master Thomas is sitting on top to keep count...he counted all the trees as we collected them in the magic forest in the meadow to make sure we have one for everyone. They're all decorated...aren't they beautiful. Know you have been attending Mama Cinder's choir practice for the family to be ready to sing to Mum at midnight on Christmas Eve. We'll put this tree next to the beautiful tree Heather sent for you...having many trees will help remind you of your loving home at Christmas. Well, we've got to keep going to deliver trees and we have more to deliver...don't forget choir practice with all the family tonight. Merry Christmas, handsome Vumilia.

Dear Vumilia, Today marks your 5th Anniversary Homecoming. As one might say, that was long ago and far away. I do know your life was not as we would have wished, but your best friend Mapendo was with you for part of your short life. I also know Theresa loved you so much. We continue looking after you as this was her wish, that you never be forgotten. We honor you. There is a Dinner just for you tonight near the lake and ALL of the Childers Family & their friends will be there for you. You have been such a big help to all of us as you are indeed a very smart gorilla. Its an honor to call you part of our family. I light this candle in your honor. Jake will come by for you just before dark to take you to YOUR Dinner. Thank You for all the things you have done for our family. xoxoxox Gloria and All

Dear Vumilla, Thank you for all of your help during the holidays. You are so good at knowing how to use the CD player,the tape recorder and all of those thing. I am sending you a remote control-so using these things will be easier for you. Perhaps I can find a small TV. Not sure if u would like one as it seems all they show is bad news. I'll think about this. The remote will help u with all sorts of tech things - if u can understand the directions. remember keep these things away from the little children as they will just break them. They do not know better, so we have to understand this. Rest and stay well. You are such a big help to all the family. xoxox Gloria and all the RBB family. I am sending you another box to store your tech things in-so the children wont break them. :-) We all love you.

Dear Vumilia, Thank you so very much for your help a few nights ago in welcoming all the Children. You were a BIG help. Thank you also for helping Puppy move his things to Jake's house. Now he is not alone. You do know you may move closer to Jake's house if you wish. Just say the word and ALL will help. Say a little prayer for your Mum. We have not heard from her in a good while. She may be with you. We just don't know. Perhaps you could check. Keep going to Choir practice. We are all so glad you have joined our family. xoxox Gloria I am sending you a nice box to store your computer in. Keep it safe and don't let the Children play with it. Perhaps you could give lessons- on its use to the adults who can manage to hit the proper keys. xoxox

Dear Vumilia, I hope this won't make you sad, but I found some pictures of you and Mapendo. I can not find out how or where Mapendo is, but I will keep searching. You are indeed a handsome Gorilla. Thank you so much for Helping Jake with the computer. You will be a very respected member of our family. I am sending you some fresh Bananas. Hope your Christmas Program is coming along well. Most Sincerely, Gloria and the RBB kids
