Letters from Grandaddy

Unpacking the last memory box tonight, I found two letters from my Grandaddy, written in 1977. He never wrote in script, just in large, crisp, block print lettering. One read,

Dear ~L~,

I hope the tooth fairy comes tonight


Your Grandaddy

It was a letter from my Grandaddy to me, when I was G's age and preoccupied with exactly the same things that she is now. My head is spinning and my heart is aching. He never met my children, and I miss him so damned much.


  1. Oh, that is so sweet. It is absolutely wonderful that you still have that letter :).rk

  2. what a wonderful memento. and did he dub you, "~L~"?
