Aunt Leanne's email to Josie

Aunt Leanne

Aunt Leanne is known for her hysterical emails.  Hallmarks of Leanne's emails include overuse of the "Enter" key resulting in the column format, confusion of recipient and sender, and a consistent and descriptive mention of food.  Food terms are almost never misspelled because Leanne transcribes recipe books for fun. Food is serious business in Leanne's world.  Josie was recently fortunate enough to be the recipient of one of these famous emails from her Aunt Leanne and we enjoyed it so much, we decided to share it:

Dear Leanne [Josie],
Don't cry; I love you.  Best baby forever.  [I] Hope [you] feel better.  Prayer [I pray] for you every day.  Get well.

Now you've got to love that!
