Subject: Long Lost Future Relative!
This letter is a long time coming. I am so sorry for everything you have been going through with your father. I am also so sorry I have not expressed that to you this whole time. I feel awful, I have conversations with you in my head all the time, I just can’t believe I haven’t spoken with you. I have lots of lame excuses for why I didn’t get in touch with you, none that are remotely reasonable considering what you have been going through. I guess I just really want to say I hope you can forgive me for my absence in this terrible time and I hope we can start over from here. If there is anything I can do for you I hope you will please call me and know that I will be there. I hope to speak to you soon,
I received this on April 2, 2010.
It took her from October 17, 2009 to write this pathetic note.
Almost six and a half months.
I lost him one month and two days later.
No, I cannot forgive or forget – ever.
I will act politely – but we both know who you are and you should be ashamed.
