In memory of Cousin Al, I recall times playing in the creek behind the house when we were under the age of ten. We caught tadpoles and tried to keep them. My Oom Albert en Tante Suz would call us to come in for dinner. Lovely, carefree days with Al and Janice.
I often wrote Al letters while he was overseas in the service.
Much love to each of you,
Cousin Ena
