Hi, Tom! So nice to hear from you. I have been reading your stories and enjoying them. I agree with you about phone calls; they can be a wonderful source of connection and a dreaded source of misunderstandings. And you are right that just wondering if my dad might make that call "from beyond" was a source of communication with him, since he was so often in my thoughts.
