Bev to Ande: 5 May 1943

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

May 5, ’43
Wed.  9:30 p.m.

Dearest:  Am loving you with all my heart, soul, strength, and might.I’m praying and hoping that you are all right and that it won’t be too long before you’ll be back.

I really put in a full day, starting out by doing a washing; then cleaned the Venetian blinds; took the car down to have the oil changed (have decided to sell the car in July as have had many offers); came home and baked a rhubarb upside-down cake; met Dad at our McNair home to dig up the flowers, and then transplanted them in the yard of our new home.  So you see, I have been busy – oh, yes, practiced too, about 45 minutes.  Have a new piece for us.  It’s “Clair-de-Lune” by Debussy and very lovely.

Judith is planning on visiting me this week-end.  Prob. will stay all night with me as have asked her to.  Will be nice to see her and visit with her again – and then too, she is your sister, and that alone, means so much to me.

Darling, I’d love to be with you to-night and every day and night all the rest of my life.  Yes, I miss you more and more as time goes by, and love you more and more too.  I’m so anxious to have more mail from you.

G’night Lover,
