    Elvira carissima , Annamaria mi ha segnalato questa ‘memoria’ di Charlie e così possiamo rinnovarti – io ed Anna – la vicinanza del nostro pensiero a tutta la vostra famiglia e a te in particolare per la sua perdita.
    Abbiamo intenzione di farci vivi via Skype , ma dobbiamo farci coraggio per via che non abbiamo molta confidenza con il mezzo.
    Un caro pensiero a Daniela che ci ha lasciato un bellissimo ricordo della sua visita in Italia.
    Ti abbracciamo , con affetto , tuo cugino Glauco con Anna.
