DEAR SANTA

Dear Santa,

I know it has been a long time since I sat on your knee.

It seems that when we grow up, we forget to ask you for a special gift.

Every time that I see you in the mall, I want to climb on your knee and whisper my request in your ear, just like I did when I was a little girl.

I never get up the courage to approach you and so I thought that I would write you a letter to tell you what I want this Christmas.

Santa, my sister, Peggy is disappearing from Alzheimer's disease. She doesn't remember me any longer and she doesn't remember you. I know that you remember her because you have your big book of names and Peggy was special to you.

She can't ask you for anything this year and so, I wanted to ask you for a gift for her.

When you visit her on Christmas night, could you give her a gift of the memory of Christmas?

It doesn't have to be a long or big memory. Just a minute or two of the joy of Christmas.

You can do anything, Santa so please give this gift to Peggy.

Thanks Santa.

Your long time friend, Mary Louise

Peggy, I wrote Santa a letter for you. You will get a big surprise on Christmas night when he visits.

You will remember Christmas!

I Love You Today, Peggy!

Mary Louise

Surely Santa cannot turn down such a request. I pray she gets her feeling of joy. Margo

I pray she does remember Christmas...even if it's only for a moment or two.

God Bless you MaryLouise, and may you have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy happy New Year.
