I don't understand why, at this late date why I get to be the first to leave you a message. I have no way of knowing if this is fact or fiction. Either way it's a wonderful story. Good job.
Lovely story. There is a missed quotation mark, un-capitalized letter, and typos that can easily be fixed. The message however, is perfect.
A real tearjerker and very well written. However, it leaves many questions unanswered such as what did they quarrel about and what has the daughter done since she split with her mother. Is this a true story? Reading this, I would like to know more.

Oh my, this just tore at my heart! Nothing makes me sadder than people in need of reconciliation. That box of unsent cards might be the saddest object I've ever encountered--but I love, love, love the hope and compassion at the end. I'd love for hundreds of people to read this and to pick up their phones and CALL already!
