  1. Wow, this is a wonderful archive. You have inspired me to do something similar with my husband’s letters, my grandmother’s letters to my aunt, and my dad’s letter to my mom. You have no idea how hard I wish I’d saved my mother’s letters to me, as she saved mine to her. This index stirs up so many feelings.

    1. I do exactly know how you feel. At one point in my life I thought I should get rid of all the letters I had been saving because they were keeping me in the past. I threw them all away. Letters from my mother and sister and cousins, all gone. At the time I didn’t realize my life work was to be anchored in the past.
