Dear Andrea, Paul, Bob and Ann,
I am deeply sorry for the loss of your Thelma and Dick, my host mom and dad.
Many years have passed since I was their AFS exchange student in 1977-78 but the memory of the year I spent with them, their lovely company, the things we enjoyed together and the pleasant and funny conversations we had will never fade away. We could only meet twice since then, but we kept in touch. Last time I called was in July 2012. I was in the US but, unfortunately, I could not come to Tucson. I promised to come and see them next time. It is painful to realize that I will not see them again, but I am sure that I will keep them in my heart for the rest of my life.
I hug you, with love.
