>I just found this letter the other week, in amongst a box of greeting cards, old photos, and other things that had been forgotten over time.  It’s very short, but it tells such a story.

    >That letter really does tell a story. It actually reminds me of letters my husband gets from his grandmother…she never finished high school.
