When I was a young boy I lived in an old farm house in Cowden. I remember it well. I was in my room playing with my toys when I heard our front door open I've seen my uncle who was in the military come in.
My mother was cooking supper and didn't even seem to notice him walk by. I was excited to see him so I could show him my new toys. He came to me and said he needed to take a bath. He was in his military clothes.|
He began his bath. He finished and came back to my room. He told me b sure to this and that in life and that he would miss me. I was tired so I asked him to read me a story so I could fall asleep. Back then we had old records and you listened as you read the book.
I put one on and we began to read. I fell asleep and awoke to the sound of my mother' screams ''he's dead''. ''he's dead; bo's dead''. I couldn't believe it. He was just here. She got mad at me and thought I was lying.
