Molly's 12/21/89 Letter To Her Children

I came across a letter today that Molly had written to her children on 12/21/89. Although Carly was not yet born, Molly would certainly have included her in her sentiments.

Molly was in Long Beach to attend the wedding of one of her close friends aboard the Queen Mary.

Molly describes various aspects of the trip and the ship and then tells the children:

"I wish you could all be here with me. It's hard for me to go away from you. When I'm away, I think about you all the time. I can't detach myself from you. You're all so precious to me."

She ends the letter with:

I will see you soon on Saturday. I love you all so much. Don't ever forget that!

Your Mommy"

(Molly drew a small heart with an arrow through it at the end).

I suspect that Molly's feelings are exactly the same now.
