1944 – “To My Sweetheart” – – from AL…
This photo is of – Al E. Aldrich, brother to my husband, Lee G. Aldrich, Sr. – and uncle to my sons, Lee, Jr. and Al Aldrich. The photo must have been intended for a girl-friend – Al has a date of July 8th, 1944 – Italy and also he has written: “To My Sweetheart” — “Al” – also, there is some other writing on the back of the photo – but this photo was pasted with glue on to a black page of a photo-album – and was carefully sliced out – and some of the writing can no longer be made out – so I guess we just do not need to know what was there – I feel so “LUCKY” just to have this remembrance of my brother-in-law.
You can tell that some bending of the photo and damage was done by someone – sometime ago – no one knows what happens to all their stuff when they move or leave behind all their earthly possessions for the next generation — Al and his brother Lee, my husband have already gone on to a much better place – but they are both really missed by us who are sure to follow soon, enough?
On this Memorial Day – I do remember those in my “Family” and all those still serving in the Armed Forces – asking Almighty Yahweh’s special blessing – since – – we all need ‘prayers’ said for us – and to always be remembered … in some way – – – my thoughts are that — to send blessings of “LOVE” to all those we hold dear in our “LIFE” time – – makes for a better world – and our own loving memories – will be passed on to the next generations!
