We want you back…

In the mail today there is something from an address that I don’t recognize with John’s name on it.  The outside of the envelope says something about “account information.”  So, I figure I’d better open it.

The letter starts off:

__ Crashed?

__ Bike in the shop?

__ Taking time off?

__ Achieved all your goals?

__ Too tired?

Dear John Smith,

Here at VeloNews we are not sure why you haven’t renewed your subscription but we ant you back.

I had several thoughts- First, ” yep… me too”.

Wish it was that easy- “Simply return the renewal form in the prepaid envelope provided.”  Sigh.

Finally, “Wonder what boxes apply to John?” Hmmm… Taking time off?  Crashed?  Too tired?

I’m hoping that John is up there cycling through the clouds…

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
