Just, wow.

I don't check my MySpace... ever.

Today I decided to log in and found the most interesting, touching message.

i was just thinking, i never thanked you for sending me that letter in the mail when my sister died. it was very sweet and meant alot to me. i still think about it all the time to this day. thank you. thank you from the bottom of my heart. you are everything a friend could every ask for. and thats why i knew frow the first day i say you that you were special. and someone i would be friends with for a very long time. i hope everything is going good for you. im sorry i didnt tell you how i felt earlier. and god, i wish you put your name on that other letter you sent me. i had the biggest crush on you! but i was a kid and didnt know what to do or say.

That message is from a friend from elementary school named Bobby. When we were in 5th grade, his sister was in 8th. She and her friends decided to take their parents car and go for a "joyride." They ran a stop sign in our little town of Morgan Hill, CA and a semi-truck plowed right into their car. Bobby's sister, Tracy, died.

Oddly, I sent that letter. I didn't sign it. I was nervous and I was little! Now, 16 years later, he says "thank you," and now I wonder, how does he know it was from me?

Wow.
