Kay Dilger Metcalfe: Written Reflections on Aging

“Dear Rebecca” (March 9, 2013)

I have many notes and letters that Kay has mailed to me over the years. This one, composed in her 100th year, was written in her beautiful, distinctive hand on lovely note paper.



Dear Rebecca,

The days slip by without my permission, so my accomplishments are few. I have a “Rebecca” Folder on my desk where-in I keep all items about you and your family. Thank goodness! or I forget.

We have had a large beautiful snow storm but to-day is a beautiful sky-blue day and no wind.

I’m sending LOVE to my marvelous friend, Rebecca, from Kay.

Maybe some week end, you can come visit.

I believe spring is planning to come soon, don’t you?
