"More than anything, I would like to solicit news of Waverly folks from you, just as my mother did when she compiled the news items every week for years for the old Waverly Star."

WHY I AM ATTACHED TO WAVERLY

People we have loved and people who have loved us, not only make us more human, but they become a part of us and we carry them around all the time whether we see them or not. In some way we are the sum total of those who have loved us. And those we have given ourselves to.

Every day, in my mind, I visit Waverly - and see again the steeples - and the lake. And see again the people who taught me kindness because they were kind. And see again the people who taught me honesty because they were honest. All of them, all of them. I miss all of them, living or dead.
