David Dear

Forgive me for not writing last week, as I did so much appreciate your letter of March 20th, which I received on the 21st, being my 49th wedding anniversary. I, too, love the psalm 27. I feel comforted and unafraid of the future.

I long since gave up any idea of making the hotel into apartments. It would require more money than I care to take a chance with at my time in life, also huge job of merely doing it leaves me weak to contemplate. My one desire now is to dispose of it.

I am going to take an apartment this spring while there is a downstairs one available. I will tell you all about it when you are home. I have been going through a trying time, sorting out a burdensome accumulation of one sort and another. It is appalling what one has on hand to dispose of after living many years in one place. I am trying to do such a good job of it this time that it will not be such a chore the next time.

I just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you and loved your letter, and I won’t try to write again until after I have seen you.

Your mother was in for a few minutes yesterday. She wanted to take me for a ride, but Harold was out so I couldn’t leave the office unattended.

I also saw your Dad last week, I was at the office and have been taking some medication. Hope all is well with you. Did you see Goldwater on the Jack Paar Show? I did. Didn’t quite know what to think.

Love,
Grammaw

    ” I have been going through a trying time, sorting out a burdensome accumulation of one sort and another. It is appalling what one has on hand to dispose of after living many years in one place. ” Well, many years later we had to go through that process with Gladys, who resisted throwing away so much as a paperclip!

    “I am going to take an apartment this spring while there is a downstairs one available. I will tell you all about it when you are home.” That must have been the move to the former parsonage.
