To: Garrison Keillor
Dear Garrison, I have chosen to begin most of the Saturday evenings of the past 15 years listening to APHC and have purchased 90% of your CD's. I have asked that when I am dying, someone will play for me your recording of Psalm 23 and your other great poetry readings. I cannot think of greater comfort. Today I am requesting a reference to a poem which I once heard you read on APHC in October -- and I thought that "October" was in the title. I have tried every search method I know without success. I believe that it was one of your original poems about love and life and the beauty of this season. I would be grateful if you could direct me to this poem...or perhaps provide it. Thank you for your extraordinary contributions to our national life and to my own. Sandra A.

To: Nick
My Dear Nick, I had hoped to one day announce our pregnancy to you on a Prairie Home Companion but I am happy to use it now, something we once shared and loved, to tell you this: that I am so very proud to have shared the last seven years of my life with you. You are a wonderful man and I will always love you. God Bless You as you travel the world and find the peace within yourself. I pray that you will return one day to me, but if that is not to be, I pray that you will find true happiness in being true to yourself. All of my love, your wife Jessica
