My wife and I were in Florida for her sister’s wedding and I got to spend some time visiting with mom. My mom sent me this email — with the subject line “Last Week” — shortly after we returned to Los Angeles:


Hi, Honey,

I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to spend most of an afternoon with you. [name redacted] was very gracious to give us/me that time.

You are so special, and I’m absolutely certain that you have found your soulmate. (after 18 years!!!)

Anyway, I don’t know how much more I could love you.

You and [name redacted] make my heart sing. FYI – it sings louder when you and [name redacted] are around.

I don’t know what’s going to happen jobwise, but I’ll keep you posted.

I love you.
