Old letters are so wonderful to read. Reading the letters reminded me of
ones my mother found when my great grandparents were living in Simnas. My
cousin translated them to me the best she could. You could feel the
heartache the parents felt that the children were so far away in America.
They wanted so desprately to hear how the children were. Always wishing
them health and happiness. Thanking them for the Rubles they sent home so
that someone could buy some boots for their feet. How painful it was when
the letters did not come to them often enough....they are treasures.
