From Mom's Journal - date unknown - 1979 (age 42)

This entry is the last one from this journal. For me it is the most profound. It is a letter that Mom had written for her friends. I believe she thought she was going to die very soon and this is her letter saying good-bye.

***************************************

"To my wonderful friends

Thank you all who came to dinner. Those of you who could not come were greatly missed by me.

These last two years have been full of a wide range of new experiences for me - what an understatement! But into my life have come a whole new set of friends. Your kindness, gentleness and friendship have made some of the rough spots easier for me.

I can never thank you enough for what you have given to me."
