Fran Ostendorf’s wonderful article “Precious memories, neatly boxed” (August 2021) won top kudos in our home – and heart. Her disinterred boxes, filled, in part, with old, family letters prove that, in a world that has gone email, a handwritten letter is indeed magical and invaluable. Rereading such scripts, ages later, vividly reminds the reader of a person who was once a part of his/her own life, and this connection is priceless.
