Is it my right to know things about my mother's life in this way? I have to consider how I would feel if my own child took to asking strangers for snippets of my life. As unanswered questions accumulate, I decide to try again.
Hi John. I just wanted to give you an update on my quest for information on my mother. So far just a few people have responded to my request, several of whom did not really know her but wanted to offer condolences. I am not sure if this is an indication that my mom really did not have many friends and did not connect with many people during her years at Hamp High or if the other 100 people perhaps assumed that I would receive many responses, and in turn, decided that they might not have as much to offer in the way of specifics about her. I do not want to make a nuisance of myself but if there is any way you would feel comfortable just letting your classmates know that I really meant it when I said that I am eager for any information or memories or photos, no matter how seemingly insignificant, than perhaps more peope will consider getting in touch.
All the best,
Hi everyone. Below is an update that I received from Michelle Caplan, the daughter of our deceased classmate, Pat Finn. Once again, if you have ANY information, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, that will help her know a little bit more about her Mom, please contact Michelle @
Thanks again for your help.
And then once again I wait.
