Today I wrote a thank you note for an anniversary gift. I also wrote a note to my husband's elderly uncle who recently had a pin put in his hip. Unfortunately it is not holding and he'll have to get the hip replaced. So I sent him a note saying I was sorry and gave him some book recommendations. His daughter, and my husband's cousin, has been terminally ill for awhile. I have never met her, but we heard she was not able to participate in a recent clinical trial because she did not qualify health wise. I sent her a note telling her I was sorry about that and then continued with a letter basically telling her about our family since we have never met. Everyone likes getting a letter.
