Writing Prompt #3-Letters to Heaven

Letters to Heaven.

I lost my brother in 1979. Today, he would have been 60. I often wonder what he would be like as an older man. In honor of his birthday, I would like to propose a writing prompt. Letters to Heaven.

We all have lost loved ones. One of the hardest things about losing someone is not talking about him or her for fear of hanging on too long, not moving on, sounding overly sentimental or just plain sappy.

Today, be as sappy as you can be. Send a detailed letter to someone in heaven. Include memories about your relationship, details about your life and unsaid words.
