Cards and Letters, please

Many of you are familiar with The PENguin’s webmaster (or webmistress, as she prefers it) Gillian Hart. She is an occasional poster on the various pen lists and has a strong presence on The PENguin website through the Webmaster’s Corner.

What some of you may not know, is that despite her charm and wit and her intellectual attainments (a Master’s Degree in English Lit.) Gilly is multiply disabled.

To make a long story short, she is now extremely ill in hospital with a rather guarded prognosis.

I can’t help but feel that both the prayers and best wishes and cards and letters from the pen community could help in her hoped for recovery.

If you can, I know that both she and her family would appreciate cards and letters. I do not have a hospital address yet, so for now, if you feel moved to do so, please send mail to:

Gillian S. Hart
9 Swanson Oaks
Swanson
Waitakere 0612
New Zealand

Thanks,
Rick
