Ann Alcock-Foster was my 2x 10th great grandmother. I cannot forgive you for her or her immediate family. I can only extend my own forgiveness for you.

Forgiveness is only from those who one has harmed. Maybe they forgave in the afterlife. Perhaps God did. I leave these flowers in honor of your great-grandson, a great author living down your transgression.
