Notice: To whom it may concern,

I have been friend with Marie Elaine Van Egmond since she studied at the Unversity of Idaho, USA. The last I knew, she was at the University of Canterberry. Since then I have lost contact with her and would love to know her new e-mail address. If anyone knows this information and could give it to me or forward this e-mail to her, I would be forever greatful
