Letter from Mom-Mom

I'm happy to have located this, and I wanted to upload it just in case the original ever goes missing again.

I hope they still make elementary school students interview their grandparents.  I interviewed both my paternal and maternal grandparents for different school projects, and picked up a lot of great perspective and stories from them.

When I interviewed Poppy and Mom-Mom (my maternal grandparents), Poppy talked a lot about World War II.  Toward the end of the interview, though, Mom-Mom told me her maiden name was Chapman and that we were related to John Chapman, "Johnny Appleseed" of lore.

Not long after, she sent me a letter with some information.  It's one of the few examples beyond old birthday cards and such that I have of her handwriting.  She died in June of 1984.
