Letter to Jordan – Feb. 15, 2007

2 Oct

(When Jordan was in 7th grade, he was given an assignment to write to a family member.  He and Grandma exchanged letters for the next few months – these will be transcribed and marked as “Jordan and Lola Letters” for the blog.  Here is the first response from Grandma – for this one, we do not have the original letter he sent that prompted this reply.)

    These letters between Jordan and Lola are priceless…so full of love and special meaning. Lola’s message in these letters are not just for Jordan, but to all of us. When Lola responded, I told her I would make her a copy before I sent to Jordan. She was happy about this because she enjoyed re-reading (re-living) these special moments in her life. She kept these copies in one of her hat boxes. She wanted me to find them and share them.
