I hope I have this somewhere else, less faded. It was in an oval frame and exposed to sunlight, thus the fading.

Only One Mother: A Card from Young Aunt Ginny to her Mother
Only One Mother Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky, Hundreds of shells on the shore together Hundreds of birds that go singing by Hundreds of bees in sunny weather Hundreds of dew drops to greet the dase Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, But only one Mother in the wid word over.
Two birthday cards from Grandma Green
This card was from 1980 and the note on the back refers to Dean and my trip to the Chetek cabin for our first vacation together. By this time Grandma had moved in with John in his trailer in Plano, Illinois.
This next card was probably from 1983 because I spent a few days with my Grandma and her partner, John, on my way from Pittsburgh to Elgin to drop off the cats for some reason or another — maybe Dean and I went to San Francisco that year? It was not the most direct of routes, but it enabled me to see her in her home. I think it was the only time I went to Plano, Illinois to visit her and John.
