It's amazing the support you can get from your Internet friends.
Just in the past couple of weeks, I've found some things in my mailbox (not my AOL mailbox, the real one, outside) from folks I know from AOL. I've only met one of the senders face to face.
When Carlene lost her husband recently, I sent her my book of poems. Today I received the pamphlet that was distributed at her Danny's funeral, along with a wonderful letter in her own handwriting.
Day before yesterday, I received a post card from Hawaii. My friend Wilona is spending a month there with a couple of her dear friends. Wilona is one of the first "Internet people" I had the pleasure of meeting face to face. She is one of the wisest people I know, and I'd go to her for advice anytime.
Yesterday I got a package from Robin: She had sent two copies of a picture of my dog Mandy (the one who recently died on the highway in front of our house) that she had edited a bit, One will hang in my cabin; the other will be just inside my back door, where everyone entering my house will see it.
Not too long ago, Barbara ordered my poem book. Along with her payment, she sent a cassette recording of herself, singing songs she had selected especially for me.
I love my Internet friends. Those of you who have propped me up know who you are. God bless you every one.
