What can YOU say in six sentences?
He was only seven but he knew what to do when mama came home. He would lock the door, turn off the light and not make a sound. He wouldn’t even watch television or listen to music while she slept. And when the phone rang he wouldn’t answer and just watched mama breathe. When she awakened he whispered, “Please stop,” and all she would say is, “When I get a little stronger, but I love you so much.”
