Dearest LeRoy + Janet; -- Received your short, but sweet letter and hope you are home now, and of course busy, I am so down lonesome I could die, also kind of tired now, I was out and shoveled off the snow piled up on the out side basement steps, the show always drifts up there, and it takes forever and a day to melt, so now even if we get more snow the old stuff is gone. its beautiful day today with 40 degrees, sun shining, I am going to try to go down town to-morrow on the bus, I have to get my glasses straightened out and maybe I can see better, Ben came home from the Hospital a few days ago, he is staying with his niece because he can’t stay along yet, but he walks pretty good, and can use his hands good, but the doctor don’t want him to live alone yet. I believe I am in a worse state than he is, my hands are really bad its hard for me to hold things or do different things, also a lot of pain in them, my legs are pretty good, only hope we won’t get any more snow, as the ice is melting pretty good. then it won’t be bad to walk. but we still have some winter weather coming here any way.
Hope I can go to mass on Easter Sunday if we don’t get some more snow, I’ll be able to make it. no news to tell you, just wanted to write a line in answer to your letter, try and write me more often I get pretty lonely around here, and it always cheers me up, tell me the latest, etc. take care, God bless and guide you well, all my love to both of you,
mother. /
P.S. Wed. morning, and I am really under the weather to-day, so I’ll just have to lay around, had a little breakfast, hope I’ll be better soon, can’t afford to be sick these days to [too] much to do. another beautiful day outside, so I’ll just have to look at it for now.
Hope the mail man stops at my house so this will get on its way. cheerio for now.
