Hand-written text: "A LETTER FROM MY FATHER" "As long as I can remember, my father always said that one day he would write me a very special letter. But he never told me what the letter would be about. I used to try to guess what theletter would contain, what intimate secret just the two of us would share, what family mystery could now be revealed! I knew what I hoped to read in the letter. I wanted him to tell me where he had hidden his affections. But them he died, and the letter never did arrive. And I never did find that place where he had hidden his love."
