I found this note folded and tucked into the small yellowing envelope containing Ryan’s teeth that had been collected by the tooth fairy. It made me laugh… and cry…
It’s a perfect glimpse of who he was.
Dear Tooth fairy,
I lost my canine tooth last week at lunch. Then I lost it, so I can’t give it to you. I am very sory. But I would thoroly injoy a gift for loosing it. Maby we can make a trade!
The fact that the note was included in the envelope with the teeth indicates that the Tooth Fairy did indeed make a trade. And she’s very glad she did.
