It only cost 8 cents to mail a letter in 1971.
Even back then, I enjoyed writing letters.
I was just six years old.
I'm writing you this letter and hoping you get well I love you very much.
We are comeing to see you when you get out
of the hospital.
Lots of hugs and kisses
My papaw (grandfather on my mother's side) was almost killed by a hitchiker.
The hitchiker slit my papaw's throat.
It was very scary but he pulled through and I loved him like no other until his death in 1985.
