• Grandma's love

    Or rather, signs of it. How can one sum up Grandma's love in one post? So anyway, here's one of her rather later letters, dated 1984, one year before we organized that party at 9DR:

    Grandma's love

    I like the way she had written "Your fair lady" on one line, and continued the sentence on the following line, as if she was giving Frédérique that title officially!

    Here are two little envelopes of which I'm particularly fond:

    Grandma's love

    (She didn't know how to spell Yves)

    Grandma's love

    This one contained some of the tea-cards I've already mentioned, and arrived for another birthday: I suppose she meant to write down the whole of the song, even if there's only one of the first two "Happy birthday to you", but certainly the middle "Happy Birthday dear Vivi boy" was meant, and she left out "Birthday", so it's nice.

    One last letter and card, sending "lots of love":

    Grandma's love
