    Handwritten letters are tangible mementos of the past. Back in the mid-seventies, my future husband and I conducted much of our courtship by letter because the distance between us only allowed us to see each other on weekends — and not every weekend either. As a widow since 2006, I am glad to have saved the correspondence between us.

  3. Ms. Yu, thank you for recording this special message. I was sitting on the fence about joining the challenge, but you have sealed the deal. Thank you for such thoughtful and eloquent words.
