Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, there lived a sweet red headed girl and her dashing Greek husband.

Young Esther (20) went to Florida with her "Ma and Pop", Jimmie's parents, while Jimmie stayed home to work.

In 1955, Esther and Jimmie had two precious babies; Jim and Nancy.

Jimmie and Esther kept in touch by writing letters.


"Hello Honey"

"Look Pretty"

Esther wishes Jimmie could come down, Pop has given her $40 and she has not spent any money.

Jimmie was a tease with a wonderful sense of humor.

"Little Darlings"

Dana asked on her website,

"Do you have a favorite note or letter, saved and treasured in your keepsake box?"

I do.

I really, really do.

These letters are a precious slice of life. I love them.

"Let us hope that we are all preceded in this world by a love story"
