Three years ago, my daughter gave me Thirst and White Pines. My husband and I have never looked back. All of your books are at our bedside and we read you each morning along with Michael Mayne and Frederick buechner and Esther deWaal. My husband has advancing Parkinsons and it is so much your poetry that gives us strength to face each day full of joy and strength. We pay attention in ways we never did before knowing you. We join all others in wishing you well through this difficult period and hope that you know how dearly and passionately you are loved by so many people.
Anni and David Willis
