[1]Portage, Wis.Dec 18 / 94My dear Brother and Sister:another year of the sunshine and shadow that life brings to us have passed, and in our hearts we are reaching out to each other with the same unchanging love, and glad good wishes. May a renewed supply of all that is good and best in life rejoice your hearts, and may all the dear ones about you be blessed with health and strength to enjoy the blessings as they come.019002[2]I think we have great cause for Thankfulness that during the trying years through which we have been passing that we have all been blessed with so many of the privileges and comforts of life.Though we are scattered and so far apart and cannot touch each others hand, we can send our thoughts over the distance and receive the answering greeting and so heart almost touches heart.We have heard from Jessie since her visit with you all01900
