Francine: (speaking out loud as the types an e-mail) Dear Mr. Armstrong, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Francine Alice Fre... (She seems frustrated, deletes this and starts over.) Hi, Lance! How are you? Hope this isn't a bad subject, but I heard you had cancer and... (stopping) Oh! (She deletes again.) I'm afraid. Really afraid. I have this friend. She's the cook in our school, but she's so much more than that. She's Mrs. MacGrady. Once she played in a rock band with me. She's one of the coolest and most amazing people I know. She's really wise, but fun, too. And now, she has cancer. So this is what I want to know. Will she be all right? Could you please let me know that? Thanks, Francine.
