Excerpt from Message

Dearest mother – I never thought we’d make it but we’re here in Paris. Just tonight we had dinner in a small café overlooking the River Seine with the Eiffle Tower in the distance and then we walked up the Champs Elysees to see the Arch of Triumph lit up. It was simply beautiful. Today we saw the Louvre - Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the sight of the Bastille and so many other things. We sale for the States on the 21st. Lovingly, Sharon
