Thank you for the wonderful tribute to Ted and Joanna Ralston (“A Song for Ted and Joanna,” July 2020).
Not a day goes by when I don’t think about them. I think the tragedy of their deaths was so extraordinarily horrendous, it is something that can’t be forgotten. It can never be reconciled, no matter how many years go by.
But remembering how wonderful and vital they were brings back the good memories. I’ve seen the pictures before but in conjunction with your article they were so splendid to see. It is so bitter to have lost them, but it is so sweet to remember who they were, how they selflessly reached out to others, how very special and rare they were individually and as a couple, pursuing the things that mattered to them and enriching everyone along their way.
And how very thankful I am to have known them.
Sue Dixon, Edmonds
