My mom would have been 62 years old today. That sounds so young for the amount of time that’s passed since I’ve seen her. This letter she left me was actually written when she went in for a routine surgery about 12 years before she died. The postscript always makes me smile, it says, in part: “Be patient with people. Everybody might not be used to your ways, like the clothes you like.”

This letter is from my dad to my mom circa 1970, when she went to visit family in Bremerhaven, Germany (her hometown). He wrote it when he got back from dropping her off at the airport.

Crinkly paper air mail letters are so much better than email.
