This letter was written by my grandmother, Margaret (Dickinson) Reese, to her parents, William & Mary Dickinson, sometime in 1954.
Margaret had only been married two years and had moved to Salamanca in western New York, where her husband became minister of the Assembly of God church. Their daughter, Cheryl, was born in November of 1953 and Margaret was soon after diagnosed with cancer. She had just undergone surgery to remove a tumor and was hopeful for recovery at the time of this letter. She died on September 11th of the same year.
