Nancy Letham, 92, usually receives only four cards around the holidays, since many of her friends have gotten older and died. Last October, Nancy's granddaughter, Leo Sheppard, posted an appeal online, hoping her grandma might receive 40 cards from neighbors in Fife, Scotland, where the family lives.
For weeks, Nancy received about 50 cards a day from India and the United States and Canada and Australia and Italy and Spain. She has also received chocolates, flowers and Christmas ornaments from well-wishers. She said, "There are some beautiful cards and they are from all over the world. I didn't expect that."
