Iggy found Liz on Facebook and sent her a message..this was our first (edited to second) Facebook connection!I heard from Liz:
I just got an email from xxxx ( Iggy) that you found a postcard that I wrote to my parents when I was staying with my older brother in Carthage, Ill.
For some reason, my parents had me and my brother (Billy) spend the summer with my older brother and his wife. Not sure what the reason was, at the time. I just know for a 7 year old it was a long time to be separated from my parents and I can remember being terribly homesick. It was such a shock to open up the email and see the postcard I had written 48 years ago. My Mom saved EVERYTHING so not too surprising it appeared. We had an auction for my parents belongings at their home in Lake George, MN this past summer. ( The postcard was found at an Antique shop just down the road from Lake George, MN )
You are doing such a wonderful thing returning photos, cards, etc. that mean the world to someone. And it will be a treasure returned back to me and I know my children will treasure it, as well.
Especially, when they hear the entire story of how the postcard came back to me. Thank you.....can't say it enough. Liz
I had not heard if she ever got the card or not..so I emailed her over the weekend.
Yes, I did get the card. Thank you so much. My kids got a big kick out seeing their mom's little girl handwriting and my extreme homesickness. It is on display in my office and has been a great conversation piece. Thanks for the nice surprise and returning a piece of my childhood back to me. Liz
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
