  1. What a great story! Isn’t it amazing that JUST the right person found those journals? It also makes me realize that I should put my name in all of mine. There probably are no Alexanders waiting for me.

  2. Great read over breakfast. If I lost even one of my journals, my life would seem incomplete.

  3. This is an amazing story. Thanks for posting it. I can’t imagine what I would do if my journals were tossed out.

  4. Thanks, nifty, fabulous find.
