Dear Jason,
Today i want to tell you about your great grandmother.
Her name was Pauline Whitfield, she was a loving wife, a caring grandmother, and a smoker. She died from lung cancer.
This was the last recording she ever made. I want you to hear it.

My grandmother died before she could meet you… and i regret that…. because she would have adored you. You would have been able to know her love. The warmth that only she could provide. If only she had not been a smoker.
At this point, everyone in your life is a smoker. your parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts.
Yes, even me.

I don’t want you to have to feel that you lost someone too soon.
So, as i am writing this i am smoking my last cigarette.

I am quitting because i love you, and want to be in your life for a very long time. I hope that i am not too late.
