[SIZE=14pt]Dear Vincent,
I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]I know if you were here my troubles would be over.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]the old days.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]Love, Papa[/SIZE]
[SIZE=14pt] [/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Papa,
Don't dig up that garden.
That's where the bodies are buried.
Love, Vinnie[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt] [/SIZE]
[SIZE=14pt]At 4 a.m. the next morning,[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]the entire area without finding any bodies.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]They apologized to the old man and left.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Papa,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now.[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]That's the best I could do under the circumstances.
Love you,[/SIZE]​
[SIZE=14pt]Vinnie[/SIZE]
