I spent the better part of my trip home thinking and have come to a decision I want you to get to know my family. Your niece deserves to know her Uncle Mer and not just some guy in the photo box that looks a little like mommy. It is really sad that you were at our front door and neither one of them recognized you. It made me think about how much time we have lost. So much has changed in the past four years Mer, for both of us I realize. You are not the entirely the same man that walked out on me four years ago.
I must admit you seem to be in your element there Mer. You really do have nice friends. I am glad I had the chance to meet them. I was touched to learn you have mentioned me once or twice; maybe we are not as far apart as I feared.
I hope you will not wait another four years to be in touch with me again.
Mer I want to move past the hurt feelings about you.
You and I were close at one point in our life I want that back. I want my brother back.
Can we start by being friends and maybe get back to being family?
P.S. I am attaching a copy of Madison's dance recital.
