These kids, who I miss very much, saw a friend murdered a couple of years ago. I've worried about them a lot, especially the older one, who protects the younger one to some extent. He has had a lot of problems before and since the murder, and often seems very hardened. I have been worried about him for a long time and haven't heard from him lately.
These two boys were very close to Solomon, my late puppy. I told them that he passed away and didn't hear back. I waited a few months, sent them Christmas cards, and didn't hear back. I texted them a photo of the new puppy this week and finally heard back.
The younger one said "Is that a pitt she is cute."
The older one asked what I did with Solomon when he died. the text "conversation" went like this:
Him: What did you do to puppy when he died:
Me: I had him cremated. You know what that is?
Him: Yea when they burn you and put you in a box
Me: Yeah. So I can keep the box, bury it, or scatter his ashes. I haven't decided yet because I still miss him too much.
Him: I think you should keep it. I miss puppy to.
Him: I bet you feel wierd not seeing puppy there huh
Me: I do feel weird. I miss him.
Him: Me too. Puppy was a happy nice dog.
Me: He really was.
Him: Do you think puppy is in heaven with God?
Me: God created him and I think that Puppy showed God's love to everyone.
Him: Maybe that's why puppy was so happy all the time. Can you please send me a picture of puppy? I miss him.
I think that makes it harder to be Jorge, but I also think that means that there's hope for him.
