I was trying on a jacket in Goodwill and debating whether or not to buy it. I found this letter (top) in the pocket and knew I had to get the jacket.
I love found things like notes in books and letters in jackets. I imagine the story behind the words. Maybe this mother was going to give this note to her son to repair their relationship but didn’t have the chance because of a horrible series of circumstances.
More likely, she wrote the note and just forgot about it. Either way, it’s interesting to think about.
The second note is my translation of the original. Feel free to correct it if you feel the need.
