Thanks for sharing. This board has become a toxic waste dump of empty opinions and I'd much rather we keep it real sometimes. _______________________________________________Thanks RT. I was going to post it eslewhere, but thought no, I consider the PA my 'home board' and hope it wouldn't get too many flaming remarks as many of my posts do.Some of the pictures were long forgotten. They were in the boxes for years and what treasures I found such as the scrap books you now have of your dad.It's like Paul Simon said:Time it was and what a time it wasIt was....A time of innocence, a time of confidencesLong ago, it must beI have a photographPreserve your memories, they're all that's left youA while back I did go through a box of letters which belonged to my mother. Now those were some tearjerkers. Many were written during WWII, some of the letters written by my grandmother of her heart breaking of losing her 'youngest boy' in the war and kid brother to my mother. There were other letters from Aunts telling of their loss of family in the war. I sorted these letters out and gave them to my cousins. They were overwhelmed reading these letters their mothers wrote to mine. They didn't know they existed. One cousin, the father of the two brothers I just spoke of in my last post and now serving, broke down and cried reading the letters his mother wrote and her sorrow of the news his Uncle (from his mothers side) was killed.There was a treasure chest of family history in that box of letters.
