The above letter was written February 1965. It was one of my last letters of about 800 I wrote to mama from 1962 to 1965. In the letter I tell her that I will be home on March 3, 1965 - almost 90 days earlier than she thought. We had not seen each other for 15 months, I was stationed on the Island of Crete in the Mediterranean. (quick side note: mama knows I am writing this and just held up her "wedding panties"" to show me she still has them! She says she will wear them on our anniversary in July - thats a long ways off! Now where were we??) Oh yes, when mama read that I was coming home early - she screamed and her mother panic'd and thought she had got hurt! Now she had to get ready to meet me - sooner than she planned - a wedding to put together and excitement at our soon meeting. No more letters to write - only a couple more coming from me.
You do know Jesus is coming soon don't you??? Have you been reading his letters, he has been telling you. Are you ready? Keep reading his letters. Someday you will read them for the last time.
You can "click" on the letter and it should enlarge so you can read it - I only did the first page - the rest is none of your business! Sorry about mama and her panties incident - didn't mean to distract you - you are not letting things distract you from getting ready to meet Jesus are you?
