About 20 years ago, mr. kenju and I went to Cancun, with two of our children, who were 14 and 20 at the time.
While there, we met a child who was about ten. She had come to Mexico with her older sister, who was "recovering" from a recent divorce.The child was lonely, since the sister didn't do much more than lie in the sun, so she began to follow us around the hotel complex, especially when we were at the pool or the beach.
For six days, we spent a great deal of time with this girl, who would hang on me in the pool as though she were mine. When they left for home, she asked for my address. I didn't expect to hear from her, but she sent a Christmas card every year, and once in a while, the photos would come too. The middle photo on the bottom was her high school graduation photo.
The last photo came in a card announcing her wedding date, and after that, she never contacted me again. I have often wondered what became of her, and if she did indeed marry her guy and settle down. If you know this girl, tell her Judy said hello.
