Dear Mr. President and Lady Laura,

My name is Katie and I live in Florida. I regrettably did not make it to your Florida book-signing tour but I still wanted to reach out and share a memory I treasure. Early '90's I was working as a Registered Nurse at Walter Reed Army Hospital where I had the honor of treating Lady Barbara and President Bush on separate occasions. During my 12hr. shifts, I saw members of the family rally around your parents and it was beautiful! It was love.
Last year when the media showed pictures of your parents and their health challenges, I cried. I hugged my husband and my son extra close that day. Love, love and ....more love to you and your family.

Very respectfully,
