The Treasure Hunter

A blog by Joanne Yatvin

My Thanks to All

Over the past few weeks I’ve received a number of warm notes from Milton’s friends and mine. At first I wanted to respond to each one personally, but the large number became daunting, and I put off beginning the task.  Finally I realized that there was an easier —though less personal—way for me to respond to everyone. I would publish your names on my blog and say to all: Thank you for sending me your kind words about Milton and memories of our life together.

P.S. If I misspelled your name below it was because your writing was not clear enough and I had to guess the spelling of some names.

My Message to Readers

Dear Readers,

As most of you know, my husband, Milton, passed away on December 13 of this year. Since then I have received more condolence messages than I can respond to individually.  All I can give right now is a thank you to those who sent me words of sympathy and support.

My plan for the future is to continue writing “The Treasure Hunter” as often as I can.  I am still driven to expose the foolishness– or downright evil– I see in many school practices and to praise the wisdom I see in the teachers, parents, and  students who understand what learning really is.

I hope to begin writing again at the start of the new year.
