My Dear - Just welcome with both arms. I am so happy about it. It is lovely to learn that Favie has some one with him who loves him and whom he loves and admires as he does you.

When he first began writing me about you I hoped this would happen.

Please write to me & take me into your life little (?) too. For though I'm an independent cuss - I've missed a mother more than anyone knows all these years.

All my love to you both & God bless you

Glory
