dc.description.transcriptionTuesday March 16 Dear Katrine: It was such a shock to hear the news of Amon Jr. at least so long as the report says "Missing" there is hope and I know that means everything t Mr. Carter and also to you and all the others. Maybe it will not be long until he is found. There are just not any words at a time like this but I just want you to know we are thinking about you all and praying for a brighter day very soon. I really feel as if I know Amon because you have told us so many fine things about him and it seems such a horrible waste for so fine a person to be sacrificed in this manner. Really brings this terrible war nearer to us and makes us realize how unimportant everything is except to win and get it over. Let me hear from you soon and with love and sympathy, I am, Sincerely, Lorene
