::laugh:: I put the woman in touch with [same name]'s parents for confirmation of the correct e-mail. I got a very nice note back from the mom.
Dear [Name] of [town, state]-
Thank you very much for your kind forwarding of this information to us. Our [name]'s email address has no punctuation, so I have tidied up the address as I forward this message. Isn't it amazing at how many [full names] have email at gmail? I wonder if you could start a club, sort of like the "John Smith" club where all of the John Smiths get together. Perhaps your reunion could be in Quito.
You will be happy to hear that [name] is having a terrific year, and is currently teaching at a language institute. She has signed a contract to teach elementary school next year in a Quito suburb.
Kindest regards -
[my name]'s Mom
