  1. Dear Mrs. Smith: I chatted with you in my dream last night and was really delighted to see and talk to you again. Your niece Kathleen mentioned when I met her in May that you were suffering from Alzheimer’s and I wondered if I might visit you in Ocean City over the summer. Clearly I missed that opportunity, but it was nice to chat with you last night. You were one of my favorite teachers at Ravenhill Academy! I remember our times at Ravenhill together so very fondly. Thank you for all of the love and dedication that you put into your teaching. I’ll keep you and your beautiful family (Hi Anne and Mary Ellen!) in my prayers. God Bless! Laura
