Letter From My Sister-In-Law

Dearest Friends and Family of Verna and Steve, My name is Donna Wefald;

I am Verna’s sister-in-law, her brother Marty’s wife, and one of her best friends as well. I just returned home from a visit with Verna last night, and this morning when I woke up, I realized that reality is still in place. I started daydreaming, as we all do, about how I feel and how I could let Verna know. Last week when I felt overwhelmed with sadness and helplessness, I wrote those feelings on a notepad. I thought I might give them to Verna, but instead I looked her in the eye and told her.

Over the next few days she told me, through tearfulness, how she feels and what she wants and needs. I never thought I’d be conversing with any person, planning out their “To Do” list before they die, but that is the reality. By the time I left her yesterday, in the good hands of my daughter Jillian, I felt she had been healed in some small way.

That brings me to the reason I’m writing to you. I know you all received a request for donations. My request is a bit different; I’m asking you to write a letter to Verna. Write anything you want . . . don’t be afraid. . . say what you’re feeling and tell her why, retell a memory you have about how you met her, or something that stands out in your memory about her. Send pictures of yourselves, your families, or your memories with her. Say anything you want, but please say something.

I am confident that she would look forward to your letters every day and that they would bring her happiness.

Her address is: 111 Almond Ct., San Rafael, CA 94903

With most sincere thanks, in advance, Donna
