Together Again

Dearest Evie, Our family (we might be described as a ‘close knit’ bunch, perhaps because we don’t really have any extended family) are used to seeing each other very regularly and being together.  I’m accustomed to seeing you each day as I take and collect Jacob from school; I took it for granted.  I treasure …
