The Goodbye Letter You Write Can Be Any Length

Recently I received a phone call from Jasmen who needed help writing a short “goodbye love letter” on her brother’s gravestone located in another country.  Tragically, he died while he was waiting to come to the United States to be with the rest of his family.  Jasmen wanted something that would give others a sense of how precious and important her brother was to her family in the event future relations would visit his gravesite.  Needless to say, the message had to be short, but we followed the same procedure as presented in the How To Write Your Own Goodbye Letter outline.  Although I have not seen the final stone, here is what we came up with together:

Even though we were apart in miles, you were forever in our hearts.

Sometimes keeping a message short is harder than writing pages and pages.  Either way, if you have even the smallest feeling that you would like to write a letter to a loved one, I encourage you to write it today.  If you would like to share your letter with others, please send it to:  Letters@LastGoodbyeLetters.com.
