012002 P.M. & in case they should try to be present David an I would meet them at Chicago then the entire family would be gathered once more & how gladly we would bring that about! For in all our devious ways & wanderings we have loved one another.In any case we soon will be scattered again, & again fathered together in a few days the snow will be falling on fathers grave, & one by one we will join him in his last rest, all our separating wanderings done forever.Love to all Wanda Grandma & grandpa - Ever Yours LouieJohn Muir
