Dear Lady Claudia,

Being a caring person (up to a point) I also want to see Snape healed.  But that only leads to the question 'Why care?' since I don't care about everyone.  Perhaps that is because he seems worthy of care.  Why does he seem worthy:

That's it - the best I can do - even I don't know all the secrets of my own mind (probably just as well).  Wishing you all the best.

Kind regards,
