A few years ago a reader of my 100 Words wrote to tell me that her mother, who'd died a while back, was a hilarious, brilliant, beautiful force of life who had the ability to make her laugh like no one else. She hadn't laughed like that since her mother's death, she said, until she discovered my writing. That was one of the most amazing and astounding compliments I've ever received.

She and I had a lovely exchange for a while, but I haven't heard from her in quite some time. I wish I knew if she was still laughing.
