Upon reflection I know there was nothing I could of done to keep you from going home early that night, while time does heal, every new tear brings new pain, it's been hard to forgive the person that did this to you, to push past the hate, yet I do. I am much older now and have a lot since I last saw you and when I see my own son following in our calling I can only hope and pray that I wont have to do this all over again with him.
