Gail Sharp of Andersonville was caught off guard when she got an envelope in the mail addressed to Cameron Sharp.

She said, "I could tell by the envelope that it was Cameron's handwriting."

Cameron is Gail Sharp's youngest son of two. The 17-year-old Anderson County High School senior died in an auto accident in January of 2013.

When the teen's mother opened the envelope, she found a 30-word letter her late son had written while he was a student at Norris Middle School. It read: "Dear Cameron. On this day my brother will graduate from middle school. On the same day I watched the movie Night at the Museum. My favorite teacher is Mr. Cawood".

The Sharp Family received the special delivery just ahead of a difficult time.

"I wasn't looking forward to Mother's Day and then we got that letter and it did make it special," Gail Sharp said.
