Letters 9-10-11

Day 9 — someone you wish you could meet
This letter is to someone doing research to cure breast cancer.

Dear Researcher,
Please continue your hard work. So many people are being affected by breast cancer. Families are suffering through treatments and losing loved ones. We have come so far in the past 10 yrs due to the work you are putting in and I want to thank you. My mom has been diagnosed twice in the past 5 yrs and due to advancements in technology, she is a survivor. I want every daughter to be able to have their mom around and where 1 in 8 people get breast cancer, a lot of people are being affected. Please do what you can so one day the only time we hear the word “breast cancer” is in the history books.

Day 10 — someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to
To my friend from kindergarten, Angie.

You are one of those people where weeks, months, years can pass by and when we talk or get together, we pick back up exactly where we left off. You are someone I know I can always count on. Growing up, I felt like we were sisters more than friends… even when (or maybe especially when) we bickered! Thank you for being a Godmother to my children, for the support you give me during hard decisions, and for being my friend for the past 27 yrs. I love you!

Day 11 — a deceased person you wish you could talk to
My Grandmother who died in 1989.

I can’t believe you have been gone for 21 yrs already. It seems like yesterday that I was sitting on your lap, eating hard candies from your jar. You were so loving and snuggly, I loved spending as much time with you as possible. I cherish the memories of sleepovers, sitting at your dresser and putting on your perfume, and the family dinners. Your death was so hard on me… it took me years to think of you without crying. I am so thankful that my mom and daughter have the same wonderful relationship that you and I did. My life has taken so many directions, but I know that you are in Heaven looking down on me and I know that one day we will be together again. I love you, Nannie.
