Dear Grandma,

I will never understand why you decided to leave me, you were and are still my bestfriend. I don’t think you realize how much I love you. You’ve been gone for 4 years and I still struggle with it everyday. I can’t call you and tell you about everything that’s been happening and I want too so bad because so much is going on. I can’t tell you about job opportunities or school, honestly I’ve forgotten what your voice sounds like and it makes me sad. I wish you could be here watching me, I miss you every day gramma. I always find myself asking why you didn’t listen to the doctors, I guess you were just tired of life I know it can be stressful and you went through a lot but I wish that you would have decided to stay for me, anyway this is goodbye for now. I love you so much grandma.

Dear Shane,

I think about you a lot. I know it’s been a while since you’ve gone but I still miss you. I miss those moments that were made during those short months. The water fights in the house. The volleyball games in the middle of the streets at night. You were free. I want to be able to be as free as you were when you died. The drunk wind blowing in your face as you did what caused your death. I want answers and I wish I could have been there to somehow stop you all from leaving but I can’t. Im a new person now and I’m lost. I connected with this book so much. I think about how you wanted to be a crow when you died when we would sit on the porch at night and I hope you are. I hope somewhere you’re flying around and loving the freedom. I’ve never told anyone this besides my best friend dean. I was molested more than once when I was younger. I think that’s what made you leaving so hard on me. I needed someone like you to protect and when you left I new nobody ever ... Read more

Dear Grandpa,

It’s been twenty two years since you left. I had so many kisses, so many hugs to give you. The first few years without you were hard, the emptiness you left is still difficult to fill. There is so much of you in dad, that sometimes I feel that I’m talking to you through him. Many things happened, some good and some not so much, but I’m just going to tell you the good ones, so you don’t worry, as you used to do for me and my sister. You have a great-grandson whose name is Julian; he is 8 years old and he’s a beautiful child. I’m sure you would have been a wonderful grandfather. Apart from that, I’m studying to be an English teacher. I really like the language and I would also like to be a teacher so that I can help others become more extraordinary persons. I have very good colleagues and also teachers. I think these next 4 years are going to be fantastic; I’m really excited about this challenge, because it has not been easy for me to get to where I am now. You see, mom and dad got divorced 8 years ago, ... Read more

Dear Jannah,

I know that this is supposed to be a letter for the dead, and obviously you aren’t. But you left me, and I still don’t know why. They say that the most painful goodbyes are the ones never said, the ones never explained. That’s exactly how you left me. Whenever I see you in the school hallways , when i meet your eye, you act like you don’t recognize me at all. You were my best friend, my only one true friend, and now you’ve left me completely alone without even one goodbye. Have I done something unforgivable? Am I such a loser that you couldn’t afford to be seen hanging out with me? To this day, these questions remain in my mind. I know that I don’t have the right to say these words for i have only known you for half a year, but those 6 months have been the best moments of my and that’s because of you. I know that you’re doing well and are very happy with your new friends, but I only hope that you’ll somehow read this letter and that one of these days you’ll be able to tell ... Read more

Dear James,

I had a dream about you last night- not that that’s unusual- you feature in a lot of my dreams. And you know about them (some) – I have really long movie-like dreams every night. Except they are nearly all nightmares now and I woke up this morning shaking and felling so ripped up inside. I can’t deal with those mornings-I have to shut everything away and try to wrap myself up with walls so that it doesn’t show. You’re not dead- though there was a time when I was scared shitless that you might be. I honestly don’t know what I’d do if you had committed- actually that’s a lie, I would be in pieces so small I don’t think that they could be put back together. My dreams are so long it would take a long time to tell every bit of them- and that’s the worst part of them- I can remember every bit of every nightmare and they haunt me all through the day. It was at a party (I think) we were all drinking but I remember being pleased because it didn’t seem to have affected me (in a bad way). Towards ... Read more

Dear Greg,

You left us.. I don’t think you meant to but you did. My dad was hurt and so wasn’t I.. I grew up with you you were always there for me. You would make me laugh and make me annoyed. Then you met her she ruined you. You were my uncle so I had to look out for you everyone knew what she was doing to you. She brought you drinking and made you do drugs. But little did any of us know she cheated on you. No one ever would have thought you would have did what you did. She told you so wrong, she should have told you better. She was pregnant and I hate it. My dad got the call and rushed there I didn’t know what happened. He told me that you had taken so many pills and drank way to much. You were not even a mile from your own house you two shared and she couldn’t go look for you. You were dead for about 5 hours and no one knew. I hate going to school with her kids and having them say how great of a guy you were when they didn’t get ... Read more
