Dear Sheila:<br />
<br />
Your letter was a joy to receive and it awakened memories -- in retrospect it was a peak experience.  It was good to see the names of other "alumni" as well.  I open feel we really turned Mississippi around.<br />
<br />
Good luck and may 1982  bring you peace and blessings.<br />
<br />
Cordially,<br />
