@Courchesne true, but i still give you credit for applying it to a foreign situation, with the daughter and wife. that's a different kind of love than mother-son love. never doubt yourself, seriously

fantastic...i cant believe how well written and full of such grief this letter was. its like uve gone through this first hand ..the sign of a terrific writer is someone who can portray those feelings so deeply, especially when they havent experienced wat theyre writing about. uve got so much talent.

this was beautiful....  and very emotional, the first part i love... 
                              "i love you like it's running out"  this was so beautiful and sorrow filled 
                              but i think if love is real, it should never run out... 
                              and you dedicated it to me.....  
                              you freaking rock and are awesome <3333
