After reading the "old card" stories this week, I just had to share mine.
My Grandparents were pack rats and saved every piece of paper or card
that you could think of. They were married over 63 years when my
Grandmother sadly passed in 1999 then my Grandfather a few years
later. While sifting through loads of papers that my Grandfather kept
my Aunt came across a box of very old cards. A few days later she
presented the entire box to me. The cards were from just about
everyone in my family to my Grandparents. They included holidays,
birthdays, anniversaries, and even deaths. I also found some cards that
my brother and I made by hand when we were very young. They were
ragged and falling apart, but I still remember giving these cards to either
my Grandmother or my Grandfather. These cards brought back so many
wonderful memories that I am so thankful that my Grandparents saved

Also another interesting piece of paper that I came across was a receipt
of the mink coat that my Grandfather purchased for my Grandmother in
the late 60s. My Aunt gave my daughter the coat after my Grandmother
passed. Love your newsletter because it brings back many good
