Letter to the Editor, Times-Picayune
My husband and I recently visited New Orleans for my 10-year Tulane Medical School reunion. It was delightful to spend the weekend with old friends and to enjoy the city that holds a special place in our hearts.
We were especially happy (however, not at all surprised) to see that the spirit of your city has not been broken by the unimaginable challenges that it has faced in recent years.
When we arrived home I was terribly sad to realize that I had left my favorite necklace in our hotel room at Loews. I was sure I'd never see it again. But guess what? A wonderful member of the housekeeping team, Ms. Rachel Robertson, had found my necklace and turned it into security. The integrity of Ms. Robertson's character reflects the greatness of the city that she calls home.
Thank you, Ms. Robertson, and thank you, New Orleans, for rekindling our faith in the human spirit! We can't wait to visit again.
