Dear Joan,
It was indeed a very pleasant surprise to hear from you Joan, but I really must apologise for not replying on this. It was just a few days later that I received the terrible news about Bob, & I’ve only been able to settle down now.
I suppose Joan you have had the same sad news as I if so, I know how you must feel, still we can only go on hoping for better news remembering that God is Good. Life seems sort of empty at the moment doesn’t it, and although I have little Graeme, it just isn’t complete. Still I really think everything will turn out right in the end for both of us.
I must thank you for the royal time you gave Bob while he was on leave, he enjoyed himself immensely. Bob spoke of you & your husband as being a grand couple, & your people made him feel right at home. I hope we’ll be able to meet some time in the future when we’ll be able to return all you have done for Bob.
In the meantime Joan drop me a line sometime about any news you have & Keep your chin up. Kind regards from
DORIS KING
