Richard? is this really you? oh god let this please be you.

mama told me you were gone..she told me you'll never come home..but I knew she was a lie..you did come home..you kept your'e promise...just like I knew you would...

Noone believed me when I said I've seen you.

it just made mama cry even more when i talked about it. why does she cry?

I really did see you,

remember that time in the cemetery? you talked about going to a place called heaven.

what is heaven anyways, is it far away?

will I be able to vist you?

why didn't grandad see you when he walked over to where we were standing?

it's like he didn't even notice you.

I quess he needs glasses.

i'll tell him once he comes back from checking up on mama.

don't you know all she does is lay in your'e old room with a picture of you in her arms?

she never seems to wake up.

why is that?

why does she miss you so much,if you already came home from war?

grandma says she's depressed after losing you.

say's she blames herself for letting you join the war.

but I don't understand,we didn't lose you.

i just seen you the other day.

tonight after visiting your grave,

uncle jonny and I are going to lay out side and stare up at the stars and pick the brightest one any name it after.

are your happy?

you'll be the frist one in the family to to be named after the brightest star in the sky.

I finally relized what they were talking about..you are gone..you lied,you never kept your promise..

you'll never be here to watch me grow up..or make me smile ater a horrible day.

mama was right all along.

god is selfish to take you from us.

I never did see you after the day you were buried..it was all a dream.

Hello my brother,

Richard? is this really you? oh god let this please be you.

mama told me you were gone..she told me you'll never come home..but I knew she was right....you never came back ..you never kept our promise.
