    Smile at one hour old

    Dear Bel

    I feel that our lives - yours and mine - share shattering events. I too lost a child - my only daughter - at one hour old nearly 30 years ago but went on to have two beautiful sons, now 28 and 25.

    Then, six months after my husband of 32 years retired he walked out saying he probably had only ten good years left and needed to really live them.
    Hi! Could someone please answer the questions that follow for me? Thanks!

    Q1: I think there should have a comma or colon after 'Bel'. why did the writer omit it?

    Q2: What does 'at one hour old' refer to?

    #1 There should be a comma, and only the writer can answer why there isn't.


    #2 Her baby daughter died when she was only one hour old.
