- GARDEN READ~ LETTER IN THE WALLET PART THREE
- GARDEN GIGGLE
We entered the dayroom. Hannah was a sweet, silver-haired old-timer with a warm smile and friendly eyes. I told her about the wallet and showed her the letter. The second she saw it, she took a deep breath. "Young man, " she said," this letter was the last contact I had with Michael." She looked away, then said pensively, "I loved him very much, but I was only 16 and my mother felt I was too young. He was so handsome. You know, like Sean Connery, the actor."
We both laughed. The director then left us alone. "Yes, Michael Goldstein was his name. If you find him, tell him I still think of him often. I never did marry." she said, smiling through tears that welled up in her eyes. "I guess no one ever matched up to Michael."
I thanked Hannah, said goodbye and took the elevator to the first floor. As I stood at the door, the guard asked, "Was she able to help you?"
I told him she had given me a lead, "At least I have a last name. But I probably won't pursue it further for a while." I explained that I had spent almost the whole day trying to find the wallet's owner.
Tune in tomorrow for more Garden Read!
The little girl replied, directly into the pastor's clip~on microphone, "Yes, and my Mom says it's a b*tch to iron."
