    Dear: Ms. Bosworth:
    My Name is Mark Wilson. My Greatgrandmother was Nora Bosworth Wilson the oldiest sister of Allie Rucker Bosworth. In reviewing your personal information, I see that you were born in California and also lived in Virginia. Since this coincides with Allie’s history, I thought I might take a chance and see if you are related to Allie. The only child I have been able to trace was Allen Bernard Bosworth. If you are related and if you are at all interested in family history, I would love to communicate with you. I have a number of photos of Woodie and Bettie as well as some of the children.

    Hi Mark,
    I have tried to reply and the e mail has gotten kicked back both times. Any chance you have an alternate address?
    We do share some family and I’d love to talk to you about it.

    It makes me happy that I already knew a majority of these things about you! That means you’re a great friend, and indeed you are! Such a rich tapestry of experiences and yet this is not even the highlight reel. These are a few, randomly plucked twinkles from your amazing journey.

    I must confess that I haven’t been to your blog in a while and was simply blown away at how your vision and talent continue to grow and evolve. You are really settling into a nice place and it’s very enjoyable. I very distinctly remember one of our first conversations, where you were resisting the move to digital. Those days are far behind and I’d say you’ve risen to the challenge and far exceeded perhaps even your own expectations.

    What a joy to know you! Thanks for bringing us along on your journey!
