Here is the scene when Tommy first revealed the letter. It is from book 2 If Only


Tommy looked up at her and smiled. “I just found something in my bag that I didn’t know was there. I had packed this bag for the trip because my other suitcase was at the hospital in my office. I don’t think I have used this bag in years. I was looking for something and I found this,” he held out the piece of paper he was holding. “My mom wrote this note to my dad. He kept it with him all the time and after their accident, well, he wanted me to keep it,” he wiped his eyes and smiled. “Sorry, I don’t know why this is getting to me right now.”

She sat down next to him. “Can I see it?” she asked him softly.

He looked at her and handed it over. She fingered the crinkled sheet and read the words.

My dearest David,

As I sit here and watch you as you are on the phone with your mom and you are trying to chase Tommy around the room and Julie is hanging off your leg, I am reminded how much I love you and our life. I know things have been stressful lately and that you worry about how we will get by financially, but as I watch you, my heart swells with the love and the faith that I have in us. I know you may think it’s kind of hokey, but I am reminded of the song Tommy makes us sing to each other and I think it speaks to what we are. Do you remember how it goes? When the rain is blowing in your face. And the whole world is on your case. I will offer you a warm embrace to make you feel my love. When evening shadow and the stars appear. And there is no one to dry your tears. I could hold you for a million years. To make you feel my love. Just know how much I love you, today and for always.

My love,
