I lost touch with Michelle Mendelovich-Michaels nee Smolllan in 2002. The last address I have for her is 11 Glengarry Way Christchurch Dorset BH 23 4EH.
I met Michelle at Hanoar Hatzioni Summer camp 1972 and we became close friends after that:- a friendship which survived all sorts of life changing events up until the death of Michelle's parents. We lost touch after that and I subsequently lost her letters. It is only now, 14 years on, that I have just found them.
Please could you pass on my email address to her if at all possible and tell her that I would really love to catch up with her if that would suit her. [Ed note: we have Jill's mobile and home numbers] My surname is now Minkes, as I remarried in 2009.
