Home Is Where the Heart Is

July 12, 1911 and grandparents had now been married a year and the first of their 7 children, my father, was about 1 month old.  I’m not sure why Albert is in Detroit. Perhaps trying to figure out where to establish his medical practice.  The card is addressed to the house on Fayette so they were still living with Albert’s brothers, Henry and Jacob and Jacob’s wife Gertrude.

Just got back to Detroit, Hope you all are well and happy.  Will feel better where I hear from you.

  1. The few brief sentences that your grandfather wrote so wonderfully convey his deep feelings for his wife. You can just sense how much he missed her–and wanted to get a letter or card from her.
