The art of communication in print is alive and well, although becoming rare. And, when my wife and I recently received a thoughtful hand-written note from a couple we hold in the highest regard, we celebrated its arrival and opened it immediately.
It was around January 2019 when we, and those we enjoyed spending time with, went into a self-imposed hibernation to avoid being infected with COVID-19. During the hiatus from civilization, we found it difficult to reconnect with our friends; it seems that texts, emails, and the phone don’t share the same level of sincerity realized when face to face.
The letter is important to us, and we will cherish the script forever, but also included with their kind words was a story tucked into the envelope.
Quite moving, with the ability to bring a flood of tears with without warning, we wish to share one of the most touching chronicles we have ever read—or been delivered to our attention.
We hope you enjoy this message as much as we have, and of course, we urge you
to forward it to a friend or family.
