Just now, i finished reading (for the second time) the book you gave me: "...And Ladies of the Club." Your note says this will acquaint me with my ancestors and i will live their hearts and they in mine. Thank you for this blessing. i love you still and beyond. From Marcus Aurelius: "What a small portion of vast and infinite eternity it is, that is allowed unto every one of us, and how soon it vanisheth into the general age of the world." Read by Anne Alexander Gordon at the memorial for Amanda Reid.
