Dearest Mary,

I am nearly speechless with sadness and concern at the news of your illness. As you know, you, yourself, have been my touchstone all these years, and your poems have been my benchmark. May the healers bring all their wisdom and skill to bear on your illness and may you soon be well again. 

I send you daily prayers and healing thoughts with much thanks once again for your kindnesses and encourgement and the beauty of your soul.

Much, much love,

Pat Fargnoli
