    Mi quierida Lissie,

    Peace be with you. Ojala cuando recibe esta notita se siente, al menos, un poco tranquila. Es muy deficil, yo se, sentir normal. Nada es normal y necesitas mucho tiempo para que todo se parece de veras. Es como un suenio muy mal que no para de repetirse. Yo, todavía, me siento muy cansada pensando de
    lo que paso a mi hija. Todo se siente muy estranio, todavía, pero con fe y amor de familia, camino y me pongo un poco mas fuerte cada día.
    Cuando quieres, llamame. O, tal vez escribeme si quieres que paso por allí. No la voy a llamar por teléfono porque me imagino que no para sonando su
    Podemos recogerlos, usted y Maximo, o solo Maximo, como quieres después de misa mañana si quieres. Solo me da una llamada o mensaje.
    Le mandamos a usted y Maximo unos abrazos fuertes, con mucho cariño,

    Arlene, Fred & Scarlett

    Good bye my life long friend. We knew each other in the days of lederhosen and tricycles. Running over my moms flowers was our favorite pastime. May we journey together sometime in the future to share the stories we missed from each others lifes in the last years. I will always miss you and promise to look in on Maximo and Lissie to make sure they do okay. I know we never met but I love them both with all my heart. Have a safe journey until we meet again in lederhosen and on tricylces again.
    Love always your friend Paul
