Faye Aline Self, Her Daughter's Words
Missing since 1983 and having two notorious serial killers, Henry Lee Lucas and Robert Charles Brown, both confess to having murdered her, you would think this case would be screaming in the headlines. That is not the case. This daughter has been on a 25 year quest to find the answers, the REAL answers. Over the years authorities have given her hope to resolving her mother's disappearance only to have that hope dashed and replaced by another theory and confession. Back to square one, and the emotional roller coaster that always accompanies a child looking for her mother.
IFTHE RED RIVER SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT HAD DONETHEIR JOBS IN 1983, THERE WOULD BE FEWER BROWNE VICTIMS TODAY."
Did you know he was the apartment maintenance man to the complex where my mom disappeared & where Ms. Hudson was murdered? The most vicious murder that community has ever seen and Browne WASN"T Even Questioned...that still angers me.
It is devastating from a child's point of view sure, but as I have grown older, I needed her here with me. When I got married, when I held my first newborn and looked down into those beautiful blue eyes and thought, "God. Mom I wish you could see this angel.' But, I guess she saw him before I did. When I was up all night with a sick child, scared and unsure... motherly advise would have been great...when I got a promotion at work...the sorrow and grief doesn't end one day. It is something we will carry with us forever. It molds us into the women we become.
I have told my children about her, their grandmother, my son replied, "Man, Momma, I wish I could have known her." Me too boy.
My mom was one of the funniest people I have ever known. Naturally funny, she didn't have to try. And, she never ever was violent, not so much as a spanking. So, for her to meet her demise the way she did is terribly ironic.
I hope this helps you, and I hope I didn't babble too much! Thanks again for your heart and all you ladies do!
