Story from a reader
From The Collectors Newsletter #511 -- April 2007 (04-02-2007)

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 them.

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 memories.Sandra
