    My parents divorced two years ago

    and I live with my Dad in Saint Lawrence. My real Dad was killed in a speed boat crash when I was five. It's a nice house but it often doesn't feel homely because my Mum isn't here. I do like Jersey, but I am looking forward to seeing her in the summer.

    It's almost 8 years ago

    since you passed away. I know you're waiting for me. But I still have some lessons to learn this life. As soon as I've learned my lessons we'll be reunited. Like you said before you passed away, we'll meet again. And we will! Only time will tell when and where.
