A contribution for Laura

After reading Lise Abrams Jan. 25 letter about Laura Carmichael's passing I was compelled to share my experience as well. I, too, was a recipient of Laura Carmichael's kindness through a newspaper clipping sent through the mail. I, too, was struck by her random act of thoughtfulness. I, too, had all the good intentions of acknowledging Laura's kindness.
However, unlike Lise, I never did "get around" to writing that thank you note to Laura. But instead of endlessly chastising myself for my thoughtlessness, I am going to act. I will be sending a contribution to The Haven Hospice in grateful recognition of all of the wonderful things Laura Carmichael shared with her community during her 90-plus years with us.
Thank you, Lise, for such a touching tribute and reminder to never forget even the smallest kindness. Heaven has truly received a special angel.

Shelly Scott,

Gainesville
