44 year old Freddy had been unable to sleep alone in the house with the stillness trying to bring his mother back to him. "Freddy my son, I must leave you now. I know that you will miss me but you needn't for you are strong. I shall not be worried about you, I have taught you well". When he first realized the meaning of those words of his mother, the only person he had ever been close to, he cried and a flood of memories came back but after the tears came the realization that he was glad. Glad that his mother was dead.
