Rowling Sends Letter as Dumbledore to Comfort Shooting Survivor

J K Rowling penned a heartwarming letter as 'Dumbledore' to help a grieving teenager, the sole surviver of a shooting in Texas which killed her parents and siblings.

Cassidy Stay, 15 raised the alarm after a gunman shot her mother, father, two sisters and two brothers in Texas on July 9 this year.

At a memorial for her family members, Stay moved everyone by quoting lines from 'Harry Potter's fictional headmaster Albus Dumbledore: "Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light."

Rowling soon contacted her by sending a letter as Dumbledore in purple ink. The author also posted a wand, an acceptance letter to Harry Potter's school Hogwarts, a list of school supplies and a signed book, reported the Telegraph.

A post on a Facebook page, which has been trying to rally support for a meeting between Rowling and Stay, stated: "This afternoon, I talked to a friend of Cassidy's who confirmed that JK Rowling did, in fact, write her a personalized letter from 'Dumbledore' (hand-written with purple ink).

"She was also sent a wand, an acceptance letter to Hogwarts with a school supply list, along with the 3rd book with JK's autograph.

A spokesman for the 49-year-old author confirmed that Rowling was in touch with Stay. "However, the contents of the letter remain private," the spokesman said.
