Umber (41.2 — Kate’s Letter to Vera)
July 12, 2012 § 2 Comments
My dear sister, how will you get along in Laramie without a husband? Myrna says you could stay with her if you want to move back to Kearney. You said you are looking for work. If I wasn’t so pregnant, I would come and help you with Oleander. You could always come and stay with us, and we could raise our babies together. I know the east coast is a long way away, but you would always be welcome.
Vera, why on earth did you tell Leroy, when he left, that you would wait for an entire year for him to change his mind and come back to you? Since he has abandoned you and the baby, you should let him go. Get a divorce, Vera, and start over. You are a beautiful, bright woman. Don’t waste any more time on that man.
Love to you and my little niece!
