Dear Makayla,

As days pass by, and years come and go I still think of you. You left us with broken hearts. And broken hearts hurt. I know you didn’t mean to, you thought you’d be fine but in the end you weren’t. I miss you.. everyone misses you. I hope one day I see you again. Maybe I have already seen you , maybe you blossomed into a flower. Maybe you are an caterpillar that has grown into a butterlfly. Maybe you were born again into a new life where your life has changed, for the better. How I’d love to know. Thank you for everything.

Love H

Dear Peanut (Lyla),

I can’t imagine I could ever miss someone I’ve never met, but I miss you, my little, tiny cousin. You never got to see the world, hear rain, and drink in the sound of family. Your little brother Elio.. He’s a handful! I bet you would have been a amazing big sibling! We never found out if you where a boy or girl, but to me, I’ve decided you are Lyla. Beautiful like your mother and with an amazing talent for music like your father. If only, if only, if only.. I miss you little lady!

Your Cousin, Lyd

Dear Grandpa Joe,

I miss you so much. Even though I never met you, (you died before I was born) I learned from my father and Grandma that you were an amazing, hardworking man. I am now 13 and there is so much I wish you could have seen me do. I hope you are at rest up there in Heaven, I know you are looking out for me in the good and the bad times. I wish we could meet, say something ANYTHING. Dad misses you immensely, always talks about you. He loved you more than you could ever know but I know I’ll see you one day. Until then. Send my love to Geordie, Mav, Sammy and Daisy

My unreplaceble grandpa,

I miss you. My grandna and your wife miss you. Your children miss you. Every person who have known you, miss you. Me and my parents knew it. They knew that you were dying. But it was too early. And too fast. Do you know that you die at the same date as Heat Ledger? He was awesome actor. Me, my sisters and our grandma saw a movie The curse of the Grimm brothers with him. I miss that you were picking up me when I have scout. I miss that you were doing stupid things. You were one of the best grandpas ever. I love you for every secoun of my life. Thaks you for all.

Your nice granddaughter Šárka

dear twin sister,

i miss you. even though i never saw or got to know you, you died before we were even born and left me alone to suffer in this ugly world. and i didn’t even know about you until two years ago. i don’t even know what to call you, but i like to think of you as Jessica. because it’s such a pretty name and i feel that it would suit you. sometimes i think of how everything would have been different if you were here, how i’ll never feel alone and that i’ll always find someone to talk to. and how we’ll share the same interests and we’d read books and watch movies and obsess over stupid things together. you were actually my only chance of happiness. i’d like think of your soul flying in the sky freely and fearless and maybe you check up on me from time to time and on your family you never had . i love you. even though the only time we shared was in our mom uterus. i’m jealous of you. cause, you got to get out of this world and i want out too. i’m coming to you soon wait for me, sis.

Dear Kurt Cobain,

Well, where do I start? Today I couldn’t stop listening to Dumb. It was one of those things that make me distance myself from my life and bring me closer to who I am, to what I’m feeling like. I also got this when I read ‘Love Letters To The Dead’. It’s an amazing book. I wish you could’ve read it. I try to combine this feeling into my own book, including you, your wonderful music, and the fore mentioned book, though I’m not sure if I can do it. This feeling makes me alive and hollow at the same time. I’m fake, but it’s okay, because it’s human. I wish so badly that you could read it. I will call it ‘the extraordinary’ and I will dedicate it to you, because you are the one inspiring me to lay down the mask and play my emotions onto this empty sheet of paper. There’s just too much to be felt more than said.

A small insignificant being

Dear Kurt Cobain,

I know that it is kind of different getting a letter when you have passed but, I want to tell you that even though you are gone people are always being inspired by you. You inspired me to start playing the bass guitar. You have inspired me to be myself and not have to act like someone I want to be but to act like my true self. Since you have been gone you have missed a lot, this year you would have been 50 years old and you daughter is 24 years old. Did it ever occur to you that once you kill yourself you are hurting other, you may even be hurting other people to the point where they are hurting more than you were. I’m sorry this letter is a little mean but I am speaking my opinion. I love you Kurt and I still wish you could be here today.

dear Tomy,

In September, it will be three years since you took your own life. I know when you passed we weren’t really friends anymore but you are still one of the best friends I ever had and will ever had and one of my favorite people. I realize you never knew how special you were and how bright your light was and that makes me truly sad. That’s almost as sad as knowing you’ll never grow to be the wonderful man I know you were destined to be. Even though I no longer think of you everyday I think of you often sometimes it makes me really sad and I cry and other times I laugh and smile because I knew you and you had a huge part in shaping my childhood. A couple weeks ago I started watching the DVD of when we did Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good , Very Bad Day. I didn’t even get all the way through the first song when my laptop wouldn’t work right and even though I tried to restart the DVD it never played right so I stopped trying. I wondering if some power ... Read more

Dear Grandpa,

I want to start off this letter by saying how much I miss you and how much I wish you were here with me and our family right now. We miss your laugh at the dinner table and your funny stories of when you were a boy.

I miss your stories about the man who used to live in your linen closet and who would rough you up when you tried to get the rent from him, I want to let you know that even though I knew there wasn’t a man in the linen closet I still loved every minute of you telling me the story and you coming out of the linen closet with your glasses all askew, ten-year-old me loved that.

I also want to say how sorry I am that I didn’t come and say goodbye to you in the hospital when you were leaving us. I hope you know that I love you. I couldn’t bring myself to come to the hospital and say goodbye because I couldn’t stand the thought of seeing you in there not smiling and not yourself.

I am sorry I let you down.

I’ll miss you forever and wish you could ... Read more
