I finished by teaching evening just after Mama Kay, from next door, had left a tub of chicken orzo soup and a gift from her daughter, Laura.
The soup was delicious.
The gift sent from Laura was a large D.
Mama Kay had given an L and D to Laura and Don, and Laura passed the D on to me. It now has a place of honor in my study atop of my writing desk with other memorable gifts from family, friends, and students.
Thank you, Laura…
