Being told which letter to delete made it quite simple, but was still enjoyable.

I do not know why I even came on this sight tonight. Maybe to take my mind off the fact I lost my dear son a week ago and thought this would help, but I can't even try. thanks for listening to me, but I needed to say it and communicate with Braingle people who have been kind to me in the past.

God bless you Babe. Accept my condolences for your loss.
