“Jean Long Manteufel has a way of reaching deep into your soul with her meaningful, relevant and timeless articles.

I especially enjoyed the letter opener article because it brought back wonderful memories of my childhood and watching my mother opening the mail each day with a special letter opener. Today I have that letter opener and think of my mother every time I use it. Thank you Jean for the memories.”
