Marcy thanks G&H for presents, and muses about the power of prayer and Johrei. “The honey coconut spread was very happy that some kind person had put it in a baggie. Otherwise it would have been very embarrased at the damage its leakage could have done.”
A general-life-updates note, plus the first time Marcy used the word leukemia in a letter. “Jed also has a weekly math class with an advanced group at another school but some of what I hear about doesn’t sound real advanced.”
A thank-you-and-we’re-super-busy note from Marcy. “Working for Ken (the space peace-keeping project) at $6 an hour, but he wants me to type and it’s sending me up the walls - even on his lovely selectric I’m no typist.”
General life update from Peter. “we now have [a] really nice [housemate]: Ed, who’s an ex-Alaskan ex-helicopter mechanic, now going to massage school & Stanford pre-medical classes”
A valentine made by Jay, featuring a doily decorated to look like a pig.
Marcy didn’t often write poems. This one, about flying dragon kites, was for my brother. “My heart longs for the green hills[…]”
Appears to be a Mother’s Day card/collage made by Peter, for Helen.
General updates from Marcy: missing Peter (who was away at a math class); seeing friends; notes about the flowers and birds; finding out we didn’t have to move; summer school; swimming lessons; more. “I’m beginning to learn to breathe.”
Helen writes to Marcy, about three months before Marcy’s death, suggesting a plethora of activities, treatments, etc. “How happy we are that your blessed minister insisted on your eating, M.”
