Excerpt from Message

Dearest Mother – We left Copenhagen for Amsterdam on a flight that went through storms all the way. On one especially rough bump the stewardess went straight to the ceiling and the coffee she was pouring went right up with her. It was a mess! Then we got in and went to get our bags. Everyone else got theirs but Dad’s didn’t show. It was lost somewhere along the way. It could be back in Saigon for all we know. They’re trying to trace it now but I don’t know how long it will take. Of course, that bag had our tights for the boat and everything else of importance. Eh bien! Sharon
