Hi! How are you? Happy and in good health I hope. I think about you often. Especially now that I get closer to my imminent death.
I look at the pictures that you’ve sent me and I think to myself, you all look so happy. If possible, I would really like a new picture of all of you together. You, Eric Sr., Loren, and Eric Jr.
I am sending you these beaded earrings – I hope you like them. You know, I don’t even know if you like costume jewelry or not.
I love you very much – and I am truly sorry that I have been such a disappointment and failure as a mother to you.
I wish for you to have peace and the utmost happiness. Somehow those two things have always eluded me.
(Here are the earrings that my Mommy sent to me. There were 4 pairs in total. This letter and earrings were the last things that I ever received from my Mommy. She died a month later on July 9, 1995, in prison.)
