I’ve written about this before but probably five years ago — no, I looked it up and it was seven years ago — I purchased two of these books. One was sent to my uncle and I asked him to fill it all out. Addie adores him and his memories were something I wanted her to always have with her. I have the second book and I will fill it out for her. I’ve started it but haven’t finished.
My uncle, being so precise about everything he does, filled out every question in wonderful details. After retiring as a school teacher, school principal and an administrator at the local school district, he became executive director at a local organization. There were newsletters that went out — I don’t know if it was each month or each quarter and I’ve already packed them away, but he went through all those old newsletters and included some he thought Addie would like to read some day.
He wrote this one after my grandmother passed away. I started to read it and didn’t get very far. I promised Vince today would be a no crying day. I lied.
Some day I will read this but not today! But, I will save it and cherish it forever and hope that some day it will mean something to Addie – to get a glimpse of her great, great grandmother from a time long ago!
