A letter from Frank White

I am flat out this week so posts might be far and few between but I thought I would stop by quickly to pass on this letter from Frank White, aka Grandpa Frank... Tina's grandpa. You might remember this post for a call out for birthday cards for Frank to make this birthday a truly memorable one, well it worked!

Here is a personal thank you letter from Frank:

Dear Friends,

I am most grateful to all the people who took the time, effort, and expense of sending greetings for my 88th birthday. My son Frank initiated the idea abetted by my granddaughter Tina, that caused an avalanche of cards totaling over one hundred and fifty. I received 46 cards on one day alone!

Many were from relatives, but a great number were from people I have never met. Quite a number of different states were represented as well as many Canadian Provinces. Many customers of Tina's stamp and card business in other countries were nice enough to send greetings. Represented were Australia, Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Scotland, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the Union of South Africa. All these were hand crated and showed effort and originality.

My heartfelt thanks to all who sent these many greatly appreciated greetings. They made this a birthday to be well remembered.

Frank White
