I have received your numerous letters but could not bring myself to respond to them.
As I look at the dock and see the boat missing from slip #3, I am reminded of all the mistakes I have made. I know I am responsible for the loss of your boat and I deeply regret my actions and the heartache I have caused you.
I ask that you please forgive me and allow me to be a part of your life again.
Your loving son,
I can not tell you how many times I have looked for a letter, an email or a phone call from you. I am overjoyed that you have reached the point in your life where you are able to share your thoughts and actions with me.
I have always wanted you to be a part of my life. You are my son and I will, and have always loved you.
