Socially Distanced

Dear Liza,

This man misses you sooooo much!

I am writing to you when I would rather be getting ready for your visit. You and Your Momma Olga and Daddy David were going to come up and spend a whole week here with us.

And now, you are staying in Salinas. This makes me very sad. But I think, in the long run, it was the right decision.


The corona virus is spreading, and people traveling can make it spread faster. Auntie Katie and Auntie Bridgett both work in shops and galleries where things get handled, they can get the virus and pass it along. With you and all the cousins being in school until this past Friday, you can catch it and pass it, too, even without feeling sick.

All the cousins

Doctors have asked us all to stay put for a while to slow the spread of the virus so lots of people won’t need hospital beds all at once. I am willing to do my part, even when it makes me sad, to keep all the people healthy.

Who I am missing…

I promise we will get together as soon as we can. I love you very much, every day.
