A Message from Beyond

I have years of emails still stuck in my inbox, and for some reason, decided to go through some of them today. Amongst all the junk, I found a precious little email that my grandpa wrote me, in his broken english, EXACTLY four years ago TO THE DAY--on September 13, 2004. Reading it brought me to tears--I'm finding that this is more than just a coincidence, and I'm taking the very special message as his last little goodbye to me.

Here is the email...

So long - Au revoir - To see you or write to you very soon-

  1. Jane,

    I am so happy you found this email. I've been thinking about Grandpa so much. Yesterday, it spiked even more ehrn I held the kitty-cat coin purse he once gave me, which I use for laundry quarters, and realized it was a gift from him. It made me sad and I had a moment of just wondering where he was. It felt that he was further and further away from us.

    This email makes me so happy to read.


  2. Okay, I'm one of those creepy blog surfers that you don't know read your postings. Found you today. Your post about your Grandfathers email letter just hit me, in a sweet way. I know that a fifty year old woman shouldn't be crying over a strangers blog post. Hope you kept his letter as I have kept cards that my Grandparents had sent me. Enjoy your travels.

  3. @Dahn Thanks for reading my blog and thanks for the comment, it's nice to know that the letter touched you! He left a special message, and I think the advice rings true for anyone =)
