A Grand Mother

Letter, dated March 6, 1968:

Dear Grand Son Robert,
Hoping this finds you enjoying life. I am coming along very good, after that sick spell I had after Christmas. How is the snow up there? It has been thawing here for the last 3 days. This morning it is raining, it will warm up some time and melt this snow.
This weekend I am looking for Lillian and Sharon if the weather and roads are good.
From a Grand Mother,
MM

- I know I usually don't comment on these posts, but for some reason this letter got to me. I lost a grandmother not so long ago. She lived right around the corner from the book shop, and I would go and visit her every day for lunch. She suffered from dementia towards the end, and it wasn't easy to watch. The handwriting in this letter reminded me of her writing; my grandmother was an epic letter writer, and you can gauge the progression of her illness through her handwriting. Sorry for the personal comments, carry on.
