Letters to Rebecca

When Laurie and I learned that our baby had some health problems I began writing letters to her--I guess that I hoped that someday she would be able to read them and know how concerned about her both Laurie and I were. Of course, when I began, I thought that eventually everything would turn out alright, albeit with the miracle of modern medicine.

Alas, that was not to be. And while I still trust that "all manner of things shall be well", it will not be in a way I can presently understand.

Since Rebecca will never see these letters, I place them here, to honor the memory of her short life, as one of the few relics of her presence in our family.
