    My Lady Maggie Smith,
    Our house-elves & ourselves are praying for your continued health. My familiars, my cats, watch your movies with me. You will be best known as Minerva McGonagall of the Harry Potter films. Us older fans, such as I, will remember the younger films you made in your heydays of acting. May you get healthier and show this disease called “breast cancer” you are a survivor. I support the cause of raising funds to stamp out breast cancer. May God watch over you & keep you safe. Sincerely – Shirley Jeann Autry
