Yesterday I found this in some boxes I was unpacking. It is the note that Mike wrote before he left.
The note was writen by my brother before he left with some friends. My mother was already asleep and he didn't want her to worry if she woke in the middle of the night and his room was empty. He was a strange teenager, how many teenage boys leave a note for their mother when they sneak out in the middle of the night.They planned to be back before any parents woke up, and if the car hadn't crashed they would have been. My mom woke to a ringing phone early in the morning, thinking there had been a mistake she went to my brothers room and found the note on the door. The song that is playing was one of his favorite songs. It was playing on the radio when they crashed.
