Barrister John-

Thank you so much for contacting me. I can’t believe that Michael died. I feel like it was just yesterday that we were talking about his dream to become a gold merchant in Republic of Benin West Africa. Clearly it was earlier than May, 2006.

It makes sense that he died while driving. That new wife of his was always forcing him to drive. I blame her for this. If she wasn’t also killed, I’d be so mad at her. I’m am sorry to lose Michael, but glad that bitch and her devil spawn were taken as well. I don’t know if you were privy to family gossip, but that kid only had one giant nostril instead of two. Creepy.

Did you happen to know if their dog was also in the car? I have such fond memories of growing up, playing with Mr. Sparkles. Wait, I’m 30. There’s no way that dog was still alive.  I hope he had a proper burial. No offense, but you must be familiar with the terrible reputation that the Republic of Benin West Africa has when it comes to deceased pets.

Tell you what – send me the remains of Mr. Sparkles, and proof that his wife and one-nostril child are dead, and you can keep the money.

Thanks again, and send my regards to Bastien Yepke and his associates. I have attached the last picture I had of Michael, when he was first training to be a gold merchant. I hope it brings back fond memories.

-Steve
