This story began many years ago. Dale and Diane met in their teenage years, at summer camp, where they fell in love. Living in separate towns, writing each other every week until summer camp came around again. As the years passed, they become too old for summer camp, and the letters dwindle to a stop. However, through the years, Dale never forgot her. Dale decided to take a quiet weekend at home. He found a box of old photographs. While he looked through them, he came to an old photo of his girlfriend Diane Williams. Memories came flooding back to him, filling his heart with the love he felt for her. He thought back to the days at summer camp and the times Dale visit Diane in her hometown. He closed his eyes to envision her in his mind, the first time he saw her at summer camp, walking up the road to the mess hall. Her tall slender body moved gracefully with her long dirty blond hair moving in rhythm with her body. Diane walked up the steps to the mess hall porch and as she walked toward him. Dale smiled. When she saw him, she smiled back. Her big brown eyes sparkled when she smiled. Diane’s smile gave Dale a loving feeling in his heart. Then he remembered he had heard she died. The vision in his mind disappeared, and Dale sat looking at the photo wondering why. He thought it might have been drugs, she was using them the last time he saw her. Dale did not know for sure if she was dead or alive, he just knew it had been a long time sense he had seen her. He put the photo back in the box, thinking he would keep the good memories of her. A week passed and Dale found himself thinking about her every minute of everyday. Dale tried to put her out of his mind. With each new day, Dale became more flustered every time he thought about Diane. One evening, Dale was so upset about the memories of Diane running through his mind. He went to the phone, called long distance information for the number to her brother Robert. While he thought about calling, he became fearful of letting Robert know where he lived. Robert was the type of person that would invite himself for a visit, or just show up one day, and stay as long as he like.
