Thomason wrote, “I mentioned in a recent news article with The Telegraph & macon.com that I am a big Taylor Swift fan…and this showed up at work today!! I’ve always seen videos of her fans opening packages she sent them but never did I EVER think I would be one of them! I’m not one to fangirl about anything, but if you know me, you know I’m a Swiftie! Don’t mind me…I’ll be crying the rest of the day.”
The box included sweaters, shirts, water bottles, guitar picks and a note that read, “Dear Britta, I wanted to write to you and personally thank you for serving on the front lines of this pandemic and for being brave enough to put yourself in danger to help others.
“I am so inspired by your passion for helping and caring for your patients and I was so touched that you mentioned liking my music recently! I’ve sent you some cozy clothes for when you’re off duty. I’ll be thinking about you, and forever grateful! Love, Taylor.”

KATE TO MAKE PEACE BETWEEN HARRY & WILLIAM? – (04/15/2021)
All eyes will be on Princes William and Harry at Prince Philip’s funeral Saturday. The brothers, who have been at odds since Harry and Meghan Markle left their senior royal posts, saw their relationship worsen after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In the interview, Harry confirmed rumors that he and his brother had been growing apart, saying “the relationship is ‘space’ at the moment” — though he added that “time heals all things, hopefully.”
He said that his father Prince Charles was also not accepting his calls.
Saturday will be the first time the brothers come face-to-face since they left the U.K. for California with their son Archie. Many expect the reunion to be emotional, and perhaps a reminder of their shared grief when they walked behind their mother Princess Diana’s coffin in 1997.
Some are even pegging Kate Middleton, William’s wife, as the potential peacemaker between the brothers.
