(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.)
