Hi, Mr. Keane,
Seeing you mention my mother's name in your 11/11 comments in the Yale Daily News really made my day! Thanks.

Hi Liz,


What a wonderful surprise! I tried to answer you by blogger-email but it may not have worked. I sent you my email address. I'd love to hear all about your Mom since I saw her last, 47 years ago!

Let me know here if you did not get my email address and I will publish it here for you.

Best,

Paul
