"Tomorrow, about 1:15 a.m., it will be 42 years since your Uncle Al died. Where have the years gone?"

letter from Aunt Mary, dated 11/11/2015.
that is such a long time to be a widow. she still has fond memories of their lives together. he was her true love.
but she has a new friend, Fred, who sounds really sweet:
on Halloween morn, Fred told me by phone, "If you're out trick or treating, stop by and I'll give you some candy!" So, I dressed up like Raggedy Ann (red yarn wig, long bloomers, red/white striped socks, etc. ) and visited a friend in a nursing home, then at dark, surprised Fred by ringing his doorbell.
