My Uncle Ralph Never Wrote to Me
As I dance around in glee, I know that I have been very lucky to have had my sister Sue's support and help very step of the way. She read and re-read letters and edited draft after draft with dedication and love. Then, when I was stuck with the setup mechinations that would take my notes to reality, along came Lenora, who brought the book to life just as I had envisioned it. I can't forget the late night transcribing sessions, when my Uncle Ralph seemed to step out of the pages that he wrote long ago. It often felt like he was indeed sitting beside me and reading the letters to me. And there would be no book, at all if my Aunt Verna and Aunt Olive Lorraine had not kept theses letters, these family treasures. It has been a journey --- and I traveled in such good company.
