The Boy Who Loved Pitfall

(This was sent to me via email on October 28, 2012)

My brother, Aaron was a good kid. All he loved to do was play video games and run around in the woods on our farm in Mohawk, NY. He went to school on Tuesday, February 19th, 1985 and never came home.  He and my mom were coming back from the Village Market in the middle of a relentless snow storm. On the way home, The New York State Police believe that she got stuck in the road and a Snow Plow came around the corner and destroyed her little Ford Pinto. She and Aaron died that night and left me and my sister Chrissy, with our dad. They will always be dear to me and I look forward to reuniting with them someday in Heaven.

This is the last piece of him, that I have, his old essay from seventh grade. I originally thought it was a joke poking fun at his teacher but the older I get, the more I wonder if he really did see something. The funny thing is, I have never seen anything crazy, in the Mohawk Valley, except the night he and Mom didn’t come home. As I was looking out the window in the backyard, I thought I saw him standing there, in the snow. When I opened the door and called to him, I saw a green light flash over his head and then he disappeared. When I walked out after him I found no tracks in the snow so I just told myself it was an illusion caused by the shadows of the night. To this day though, I think it was him. I really do.
