A Conversation With Brian

by Richard Slater

Lazyboy by ReissHi Grandpa. I love you.

Hi Brian. I know and I love you too.

Grandpa, are you very old ?

Well, yes I guess you could say I am pretty old.

Grandpa, are you going to die sometime?
Yes Brian, sometime. Why do you ask that?

Well, a boy at school said that his Grandpa died and I wanted to ask you when you would die?

We all will die sometime, Brian.

Will you go to heaven?

Brian, I will go to where our Creator lives. All of our old people are there now and I know that there is a place there for me.

Grandpa, will there be a place there for me to when I die?

Oh, yes Pilaichi there will be a place for you. When you are a very old man Our Creator will call you to his fire.

Will you find me when I come there, Grandpa?

Yes, Brian I will be there waiting for you.

Grandpa can we go hunting and fishing and skip rocks down at the river, like we do now?

Yes Pilaichi we will.


What Brian?

And we can paint our faces blue and be new boys again, you and me, huh Grandpa?

Yes Brian, new boys again, you and me.

Grandpa, I love you.

I know, I love you to Pilaichi.
