A Call from the Past

by Ruth

I was in touch with my first cousin and have kept up the communication with her daughter, my second cousin. I had asked for the address of another cousin which I finally obtained. I wrote her in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. I was surprised when she called me. I hadn’t seen her or communicated with her since 1939 or 1940, approximately 70 years or so. It’s very difficult to believe. Her name is Mable and I played with her and my other two cousins, Vina and Bernice. We all were approximately the same age, give or take a year. We all would visit my Aunt Sadie on the farm in around 1925. It was great fun.

However, I wasn’t home at the time and I do not have a phone number for her. She did say she was very happy to hear from me, and would call back. It seems she is in a nursing home and also cannot write, but she sounded alert and on the ball.

To be continued…

It’s exciting to hear from the Past.
