266. 266

Timothy told me that he was working in Spain as a marine engineer. He gave me his address anyway in case I ever changed my mind and Charlie must have found it and threw it away. I tried to find out where he was living, Spain is a big place and I had no idea of how to go about finding someone then. The years seemed to go by so quickly and as they did my hopes of ever seeing you again too. It was only when Charlie died in an accident at work and I decided to find Timothy. I never had the money before to try and find him but now I was wealthy after the shipyard paid me a lot of money for my husband’s accident. It took me almost a year but I found out where Timothy was living. He had married and had three children. That made matters worse. How could I just walk into his life after all that time and also be a grandmother to his children when I hadn’t even been a mother to him. The headaches that I had been suffering for years got steadily worse. I saw a specialist who said I had a tumour on my hippocampus. Wherever that is in your brain. I ignored it and tried to control it the way I’d always done with pain killers and a few strong drinks. I kept sending cards and presents to Timothy’s house on his birthday and at Christmas time for him and the kids. I wonder if he knew that they were from me as I never signed the cards. My condition got steadily worse and I began to forget things, you know just little things at first my short term memory was going but my memory of you still burned brightly. I never stopped loving you Buzz. If only I’d known sooner that you were alive.

As I sit here writing this final letter I know that my life is fading, please try and forgive me.

Yours forever; until we meet again Elizabeth X


Buzz took a handkerchief from his pocket and wiped away his tears he folded the letter and placed it gently into the envelope and then into the inside of his jacket. The plane taxied down the runway and took off. It climbed to over 450 feet in a few seconds slowly it climbed and it soon was above the clouds. Buzz whispered out of the window. I’m coming soon my love be patient I’m coming.
