‘Give your wife a kiss from me’
MONDAY, March 29 – Dear friend R, what wonderful news! I laugh and cry at the same time at your hilarious story about the birth of your second child. I’m so very happy for you. Now the four of you are a complete family. I know that, since I remember how we felt when Jennifer gave birth to our second son. I laugh and I cry when I think of what was once, for us, a complete family; but, above all, I’m happy for you, my best friend. And give your wife a kiss from me. Your happiness is worth so much to me. I’m going to hang up now, and have a good cry on my own, this time for the loss of what was once our family of four.
