The letter I wish I'd sent

Well, Dear Peg,

I just thought I'd drop you a line to see how you are and thank you for a wonderful gift you gave me as a young child. It is the simplest of gifts that had a profound effect on my life and has held me in good stead over the years.

I always loved coming to visit you and Mikey and I have fond memories of the constant tea on the stove that never ran out and punctuated every act of every day; the door that was always open and your great welcoming smile.
