When there was a WAR .. 1940s – America did call several members in the same FAMILY – – – and this is Al E. Aldrich from Saint Louis, Missouri – – lived in Birmingham, Alabama – – and later moved wife, Thelma and son to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Al and his wife, Thelma operated the “Dobbs House” Snack Bar in Birmingham, Alabama and were doing a very job – – so much so that there was the possibility of opening up of the “Snack Bar” market in Florida. Al communicated with his brother Lee, my husband – that – the “Dobbs” people were looking for someone to open and run a new place in the southern part of Florida. This was just a terrific opportunity for my husband – – since he had been shot and was thinking of taking an early retirement from the Saint Louis Police Department – so we took a “pre-view” trip to Florida and everything sure did look “real” good to us!
Sometimes… we miss the boat – when we fail to communicate with our Family – – -opportunities are sometimes missed and also the relationship of brothers and their Families – – – so that is NOW – why I have to Thank the Almighty Yahweh – that there was good – very good feelings between Al ‘s Family and my husband Lee and all of us – all together and forever!
Thank you – Almighty Yahweh – you knew that Lee, my husband did not have many years left here – after having been shot – – but you worked special behind the scene activities – so that Lee could have some very good years in Florida – – with his brother Al and all of us. Thank you – – – for the best “Army Veteran and brother-in-law, Al – for giving so much thought to the special needs of his brother Lee and FAMILY!
