Title: One Last Time
Rated: G (There is some death)
Summary: I prefer to have you read this story without a summary, because I don't want to give anything away. At the end of this story, I talk about why I wrote it, and how I am a part of this story. I hope you will enjoy reading it, because I wrote it with a lot of tears, and a lot of love for the four men who make up The Cartwright Family, that we have all come to know and love. I will say this, and that is, that if you are a true Bonanza fan/Adam/PR fan, you will be able to read between the lines.

It's just two brothers talking to one another, and that's what I wanted to be concentrated on. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you.
