- Dear Evelyn,
Good for your son! Some of us, perhaps many of us,
are latecomers to family history. If the demands on
our time do not prevent our pursuits, then our
preoccupation with figuring out who we are and what
hand we have been dealt in the game of life do the job
Additionally, I always trusted that there was
tomorrow when today tripped me up. Then,as a footnote,
I told myself that should tomorrow never come, then I
would have my answers all too soon.
Mama's ill health forced me at an early age to
become caretaker of my younger siblings. I had no time
to think of myself and of the future because of the
very pressing present. The past--well, it wasn't
helping us much back then, and I couldn't very well
rewrite it, even if I had wanted to, could I? So, I
just let it slide, figuring that the records were
there and would always be there waiting for me when
life gave me a breather.
I am happy, and I see that you are too, for your
son's interest at whatever age it has blossomed. If in
any way, I can help him with his questions or
research, I will certainly step forward, and I feel
sure that our other group members will do the same.
I am sorry to hear of your illness but glad that
you have returned home. I think often of you and your
generosity in helping me on more occasions than I can
count. It will be a pleasure for me to be able to
return the favor in furthering your researches on your
A speedy and full recovery to you. Thinking often
of you, Carol
