PREFACE
This writing grew out of a request from my daughter, Anita, that
I write to her concerning me, my family, my parents and their
families; how we lived, how we grew up; our ideals, our customs,
and our social life.
The original writings were in the form of letters written to
Anita during the last few years. When my sons, Dennis and Larry,
learned of the letters, they also asked for copies.
