Re: Received Personal Letter from the Mayor

Write Away,

One more comment, You wrote:

"I told her that the people whom I interviewed had mixed feelings. But in the end, they viewed the plantation as part of the families' history. I remember writing that "to them it was still home."

That was the same with Mr. T. Willie in my story. His little house, that had "everything" that he needed was part of his history and was his home. I'm sure if that local paper that wrote an article on him before his death would have asked him about his life, he would have said, "It was good and still is good." I did not see and he did not see what the "outside world" saw when they saw his "house." We both saw "home."

Okay, I'm done now. I'm about to get emotional :-)

Thanks again and I am claiming the publishing of a future book!
