From my Email Bag:
"Hello Suzanne, I am enjoying all your suggestions about writing. My mother passed away in June and my siblings and I were recently were given an envelope of money that she had worked hard to save for each child. When I eventually opened my envelope, I thought, 'How wonderful it would have been if she had written something to each of us--like a final voice from the grave with some sort of praise or encouragement.' While I appreciate the cash, the words would have been priceless. The money will be deposited in the bank for my children, and I've started to form a letter to each of them, telling them what their lives have meant to me."--Regards, Lee
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
