A letter from Mrs. Walker about her four boys…
The boys just called me mom. You can call Mrs. Walker, or mom, or whatever you would like. It doesn’t matter much to me, because I’m dead.
Now, don’t get misty eyed on me. Just because I’m dead doesn’t mean I’m going to let my boys get away with ruining their lives. So, you see, I thought ahead. When they were much, much younger, still young enough to dream, I made each of my four sons write a list of the top three things they wanted to do in their lives. Crazy things. Wild things. Things likebe a rock star and own a hundred horses, be a race car driver or adopt a dog. Such inconsequential things, the dreams of children…until they aren’t. Until we forget.
My boys all had a really rough start, bad homes, abusive parents, drugs, alcohol, death. But I took them away from all that and created a family. But I know these boys. They work hard and will fight harder. They’re all in their twenties now, and life is going to suck their dreams right out of them.
Well, not if I have anything to say about it. Since I’m dead, they can’t argue with me. I saved those cards (and the dreams they wrote inside). Now that I’m gone, I expect them to honor my final wish, and chase those dreams. And if they happen to meet an irresistible woman and fall in love along the way? Well, all the better. I want grandbabies. Lots of them. And I want my boys to be happy. It’s time.
I’ll be watching.
Ms. Walker (aka Mom)
P.S. I hear you can now read Chance’s story for free, thanks to that lovely author, Ms. Callahan. She knows my boys almost as well as I do. Loves them almost as much, too. Almost…
