After All This Time

June 7, 2016 - A small package of documents arrived this week, sent by my sister Louise, to my great delight. I am putting a couple of them here along with a couple of comments.

First - these two photos were carried in my Dad's wallet for many years. One is of me in Chester at Deva Terrace and the other is of Mom. I'm not sure where it was taken but it's a beauty. I do remember he still my picture in his wallet in the late 50s as I saw it there once by accident. I believe these photos went to war with him.

And then there is a letter Dad wrote in answer to author Martin Middlebrook. Middlebrook was doing research for his book The Schweinfurt-Regensburg Mission published in 1983.

Middlebrook quoted Dad in the book and used some of this letter verbatim - pages 184, 186.

So even as the years roll on, more bits and pieces of our family's history continue to arrive on my desk. I am grateful for it all.
