It all ends

Dear Dan,

It All Ends.

I don't know how I feel about this. Aside from the end of the series and no more books or movies coming out, I mean. There's the connection we always shared throughout the books/movies. I hate that that will end, but in reality that ended July 25, 2007. I got your phone with your texts, asking friends if Harry lived or died. He lived; you died, and I would give the world if that could be reversed.

On July 15, 2011, the last film will hit the theatres. One more piece of life is moving on without you. It's one more piece of you I lose.

Just like life, yes it all ends. And just like life, doesn't it look exciting? I wish you were here to see this.

I love you, my brother.

Aunt Ruth

Dear Dan,

We just got a call from Uncle Bill. Aunt Ruth died this evening. I'm sure you've already greeted her; please say hello for me. Let her know how much she will be missed by those she has left behind.

She and Uncle Bill were childhood sweethearts. The only time they were apart was when he was in the service. Ruth was such a sweet and unfailingly kind woman. The past several years have been tough on them both. Arthritis crippled her hands so badly she has been unable to dress herself.

Now she will have full use of her hands again, Please hug Ruth for me.

I love you, bro.
