"My dearest Leslie," Mr.Roberts began reading from the letter. "It must be a bit of a surprise to you finding yourself here at the reading of my will. Your grandmother died the year you were born, so it's entirely likely that you have never even heard my name. You were named after your grandmother, Leslie Dianne Avery, just as my granddaughter Olivia was named after me. Your grandmother and I met our first day at Havisham women's college and we became inseparable friends immediately. Those days at Havisham were so special to us both. Even after graduation, when Leslie went her way and I went mine, we remained in close contact. My biggest regret in life is that I haven't' kept contact with you following her death. by now you are a full grown woman, and I've missed an opportunity to see you grow in your grandmother's image."
"Leslie, my fondest wish is to see that you and my Olivia meet, and that you two girls attend Havisham together just as your grandmothers did. To know that the names 'Olivia Mackenzie' and 'Leslie Avery' will be heard again throughout those halls, your laughter echoing ours from so many years ago, would make my life complete."
