After learning of her father's engagement to Roberta, Sid's daughter, Cynthia, writes a letter. Transcription follows.
24 October, 1983
Just a card to say hello and to tell you again how happy I am for you and my Dad. For both of you the idea of marriage must hold lots of challenges and excitement. Having been married for 14 years I can attest to both – and also to the difficulties of marriage. But where love & good will abound – nothing is impossible – and so I look with hope and optimism toward this new relationship.
You will both continue to be the object of my prayers – but I believe firmly in the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of Love and I know your lives will be blessed.
