Reading Jim Stingl’s column this weekend gave me the shivers.
The woman featured in this piece, Jeanne, wrote letters to the love of her life everyday, even though they were returned because his was missing in action as a prisoner of war during World War II. Chet, who would be released May 1, 1945 and would eventually marry Jeanne, never read the letters until after her death. 
I had the pleasure of working with Stingl this past summer and love his attention to detail and the way he tells the stories of so-called ordinary people. Stingl’s column about Jeanne and Chet is here.

Book by mother of girl killed in Tucson shooting reflects on daughter’s life, pain of attack

"The family draws strength from her memory.

One such moment that’s chronicled in the book came as her parents stood near her casket during a viewing of her body. Another mother told Green’s parents that when her son was new to his school, he sat alone on the bus for a few weeks and was unhappy.

The Greens’ daughter sat with him for two weeks and talked to him on the way to school and made him feel better. The mother thanked the Greens for her daughter’s kindness.

Christina-Taylor never relayed the story to her parents.”
