  23. Dear Peggy,

    I recently heard about your daughter’s passing from Rita Davis. Emily looked so much like you that it startled me. Although it has been decades since high school, I remember the good times we all had, and I just wanted to reach out to you across the years and miles. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. Cancer is such a relentless disease — my husband of 39 years died of it four years ago — and I know what you must have gone through. Even though the most heartfelt expressions of sympathy can bring little comfort, please accept mine for whatever they’re worth. And know that your Port Arthur friends are thinking of you.
