Preface

Present

MRS. FORBS WALKED OUT OF THE HOSPITAL ROOM WITH TEARS IN HER EYES. AT THAT POINT I WASN'T sure if they were tears of happiness or grief. Jenny, Grace's sister, and I stood to greet her.

"Mom…?" Jenny asked hesitantly.

Mrs. Forbs just shook her head as more tears fell down her face. Jenny started to cry as well, but I prayed that she was just jumping to conclusions. Even with that in mind, tears started to well up in my eyes.

"Go say goodbye to your girl Seth." Mrs. Forbs told me, gesturing to the hospital room that she has just exited. More tears gathered in my eyes as her words sunk in.

She was gone.

Grace was gone.
