Hours passed as normal and I was leaving with my date to go to the movies. My mind was set at ease about my squalling parents as I watched Mortal Combat 2 at the theatre.

The main reason is because my grandfather left a lot of his money and business and farms up to my dad to split up or keep and they didn’t like that, but over the years now my family has gotten closer and closer and I hope sometime in the future we all can get back together as one family again. I miss my grandparents every day and I think about them every
