  1. To Ray and Hilary,

  2. Dear Ray and Hilary,
    I am sorry to say you don’t know me, but perhaps Gail had spoken about herself,Kay and I,
    and our adventures in the wilds of Goose Bay,
    Labrador. I have just found Kay again and she had given me Gail’s address. Due to my daughter’s health issues I had not written yet,
    and I shall regret it the rest of my life. My deepest sympathy to you both.
