a valentine exchange

 
 red roses were sent to my mother on valentines day. the card read:

Mother,
These flowers are sent to you on behalf of Mark. 
I hope that each time you 
see these flowers that you will reflect on a 
memory of Mark and feel his 
warmth and love for you. We all love you.

 
My thoughtful (and secretly sensitive) brother brandon sent 
them to her since mark (also thoughtful and secretly sensitive) 
used to send her flowers every valentines day.



they were beautiful 
and brought tears to my mother's eyes.


little did we know that mark was getting a valentine in return.
a mother of a warrior buried next to my brother
sent us this picture.
