Some special treasures are old letters. Tonight I am going through old letters from family members.
There are letters my dad's mother wrote to him. She will get cancer and pass away within a couple of years.
There are letters written by my mother to her mother. She is sharing she is not feeling well and is scared. There is polio going around. This is in 1952 and she would get polio.
Letters that grandma wrote home while visiting my mom after she got polio. Included was a letter I wrote to her husband, my grandpa. Of course I am 4 years old and it is not possible to make it out what I wrote to dampa.
Along with these letters are the envelopes with addresses, this way we can see where my mom and dad were living in Texas during this period of time.
These treasures are from the 1940's to the mid 1950's. I am putting into mylar pages and including the envelopes. This will keep them safe for future generations.
Always sad to see old letters, cards and postcards thrown away or sold at estate sales. This if great family history that should be treasured.
