6/22/86Dear Mom & Dad,
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and all the support you've given me, especially on my upcoming trip. This trip would not have been possible without you – financially or physically. Between your persistence about me traveling and a few other things, I think those are the main reasons I am going.
I am sure this will be a fruitful experience mentally and spiritually. I'm sorry the stop in London on the way back didn't work out. maybe next summer?
Never think I am embarrassed of you – I have every reason to be proud of you and being your daughter. I can never repay you for all you've done.
I love you,
