Saturday, August 4, 1945

Dearest Gee. Thought sure I had a letter and a half today but it turned out to be the anniversary cards you sent. They were all pretty swell weren’t they. And for some reason or other they all wanted me and you to be together for the next one. Little do they know that weContinue reading “Saturday, August 4, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Got two swell packages today and two swell letters from you yesterday. Sure do thank you. One of the packages had a return address of Mrs. F.B. Bruns so I don’t know which to thank.
