ViewMate Translation request - Yiddish

Sue Okun
 

I've posted a letter from my mother to her parents in Yiddish for which I need a translation. It is two pages long, and it is on ViewMate at the following addresses:


If you can help, I'd be very appreciative.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

Sue, I can translate the two letters and the third page, which is a lullaby. I won't be able to make it rhyme but it'll give you the idea of what the lullaby is about.
I won't be able to start til Sunday or Monday, but I promise to do the translations.

Shabbat shalom,

Thank you, Dena!  Someone has already translated the lullaby and the second page of one of the letters, so I've removed them from ViewMate, but the others are still there and I would be most appreciative.  

I am also from Philadelphia originally, and have lots of connections to Israel. When did you make aliyah?
