After the Christmas Pageant at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in New City, NY we celebrated at the New City Diner. My grandest granddaughter needed her grilled cheese sandwich and fast after singing her little heart out with her classmates. As you can see , we are having a moment of mutual love before lunch arrives. Age and my sweet little beauty girl together, just for a beat with no one else saying a word we were aware of.
Recently I found a few of his letters written before we married. This is one.
Dear Bearhugger, Today was the worst. My roommate crash-landed his plane during a training flight. He was from Belgium. A good guy. I have to pack his gear to send back to his family. Love you always, Bud
How well I recall receiving that tear-stained letter written on thin paper in 1951.
Here we are about to greet 2013. Love the ones here, hold them close and never forget your loved ones passed.
