Click and Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Walker) Click, left Tennessee to further his education and became Dean of Arts and Sciences at the University of Texas.

June 11 - 68
Dear Laura:
I am sending a copy of the memorial Resolution the Faculty published about Loring. I thought you would like to see them. Please let me know if you receive this letter. I sent a notice of his death to you, also one to David & Mary. I had their address from a Christmas card, but never heard whether either was received or not.

I presume you received [unreadable] as no letter has [co]me for him from your [si]nce he died. Your [la]st one to him came [ju]st two weeks before [he] died and he was [s]o glad to get it.

Laura & Susan are at home [in] Houston for the summer. [I] miss them greatly. [T]heir [sc]hool is just thirty miles [aw]ay and they were here [ev]ery weekend. They each [ga]ve their Junior Piano [re]citals this spring and [pe]rformed beautifully.

[R]obert, 13 is such a sweet boy. [He] is growing so tall. He [do]esn't like to study as well [as] the twins do.

[I] guess I am getting along

fairly well. It is so sad and lonely without Loring. I am sure I will never get over his death. But I just do the best I can from day to day.

Love to all
