This was totally made up. I had the idea that Gerry had a teenage sister in Ireland that his parents adopted and I wondered what his letter would say if he wrote to her before he died
As you know I’m no longer alive. I don’t want ya to worry little dove, I just want ya to know that I’m proud of ya kiddo.
So proud of ya. And any man who lands ya will be a lucky man indeed.There’s a present for ya under the stairs kiddo. I made Holly leave it for ya, it’s a new Guitar. I know how much ya loved to hear me play me Guitar baby girl.
I want ya to know that even no I’m no longer here I’m watchin’ over ya and I want ya to do well in school. Don’t let me down now kiddo, I’m warnin’ ya I have me ways of finding you
Now get off your arse young lady and get to that closet. Get learnin’ how ta play that guitar and amaze me
I’m watchin ya kiddo
With a sniffle Branna folded her letter up after reading it and held it to her chest. She looked at her closet and smiled walking over then opened it and smiled crying. Just like he said there was a brand new Guitar sitting in the closet with a note attached to it
Picking up the guitar case she opened it up then strummed a few notes giggling “Gerry, look. I’m playin’ me guitar” Her giggles faded out as she put the guitar down and snuggled in bed reading the letter again until she fell asleep
