Hi, Stephen...

I would like to start by saying I am sorry, as I know that night was an accident that took your life and it is pain that I have lived with for thirty-six long years. I have looked for you a long time, so I recently went down to the Vet Center trying to get some help and they did a great job helping me find you.

I am writing this to help me deal with this problem knowing that I was involved in an accident that took a young man's life. We were all young at that time. I just wish I could go back to that night and change everything, but I can't.

I have thought about you for a long time. I know that your family has missed a great man over the years, not getting to talk to with you or see the children you would have had, as I have two grand children and some times when I am holding them I think of you and that you will never have that feeling and it just breaks my heart to think of that. I pray that when my life is over that I will get to see you face to face and tell you how sorry I really am. Well, I will let you go for now, for I am not too good with words.

Sincerely yours,
Barry Green
