3 Things you want to say to different people…
Hmmm. Ummm…Okay, I’m thinking.
Okay, three things I want to say to different people:
First Person: My daddy (he died when I was 7 years old) and I would very much like to have a conversation with him as an adult. Sit down with him over a cup of coffee and I would ask him about his childhood, about his time in the Army, about his thoughts and opinions on various things like religion, politics, etc. I would tell him about my kids, about how happy I am with David. I’d ask him about his hobbies, other than golf, and how he liked having a motorcycle and why he sold it. I’d just want to talk to him about all kinds of things. Since he died when I was young there are a number of things that I have no idea about and would really like to know. I think that is the hardest part about losing a parent when you’re a young child…You don’t know what your parent was like as an adult and having a conversation with him adult to adult would be enlightening, to say the least. To be able to tell him how much I love him and miss him, to tell him how wonderful it is to see him and talk to him, even if it were briefly.
Second Person: My (paternal) grandmother (Momo), she died a few year ago and from everything I’ve gathered she had a very interesting life, and there are things about her I never knew until after she died. Like how exactly she and my grandfather met. I’d like to find out more information about her parents and grandparents. I’d also like to be able to sit down with her over a cup of coffee. Though she died when I was an adult there was so much more to her than I know. I’d like to tell her how very much I love her, how much I miss her and at least show her pictures of my 3 month old grandson.
Third Person: Stephen King: Dear Mr. King, I would like to think you for inspiring me, for being such a great author that you grabbed my attention when I was 10 years old and began reading “Salem’s Lot” and 35 years later I’m still excited whenever one of your books comes out. As an avid reader I like various types of books, but you’re my favorite and it’s your books that have inspired me to write myself (I’m re-reading your book “On Writing” now).
And I’d like to say thank you to all the people in my life. I’m appreciative of each and every single person in my life.
