About this title


Every year Lorraine Williams (wife of Elmo Williams (Oscar-winning longtime film editor and film producer of Twentieth Century-Fox), found the time to write to family and friends around the world. As she typed her letters of love, inspiration and humor, little did she know that they would be awaited with such anticipation. Lorraine's annual Christmas letters, along with letters regaling her film related escapades, found their way into the hearts of the people she loved as she traveled through England, France, Germany, Afgthanistan and the United States with her family. Adopting three children, workiung on film scripts, learning the various languages necessary to negotiate life for a family of five..nothing could keep Lorraine from making heart-felt connections with people everywhere; for many, herletters made their holiday season complete. Lorraine became well known over the years as a gifted speaker and community leader. Since her death in 2004, her husband received literally hundreds of requests to compile her letters so that friends and relatives could have the joy of hearing her voice once again. This collection represents the best of Lorraine Williams. In Lorraine's honor, Elmo Williams has personally been raising funds to build a non-denominational chapel in Brookings, Oregon. This structure will be open to the public for anyone who wishes to enter, to meditate or simply relax in the peadce and quiet of a place surrounded by trees, flowers and fresh sea air. Mr. Williams will dedicate this "Capella by the Sea" when completed in the fall of 2008, as a memorial to Lorraine the love of his life.
