  •  A recent letter to the editor caught my eye. There seemed to be a plaintive cry hidden in the words of sorrow and loss. Someone had lost an envelope containing money that was her allowance, dollars to be spent carefully over the coming weeks. Perhaps the cash would be used frivolously. Maybe it would be offered in compassionate caring for another or as an unexpected gift — just because. The reason mattered not. The loss was palpable.
