Bev to Ande: 6 June 1943

June 6, ’43
Sunday  11:30 p.m.

Sweetheart Darling:  I love you and want you so much.  Do hope you’re fine, and I do know you’re as wonderful as ever, because you always are.

This hasn’t seemed like Sunday at all, as we’ve spent the whole day working.  Audrey and I painted the kitchen chairs – gave them their first coat today and did some more straightening around.  Soon we’ll be in order, I hope.  We still have to wash walls, clean paper and do other painting, but we like our house and enjoy working in it.

Ted Paulfranz came over this afternoon and invited us over for the evening; so we were there, just returning a few minutes ago.  They’re quite near us now, living at 38th and Washburn.  We do have many friends near by – but Honey, I’d trade everyone of them, if I could only have you here with me, because you’re really the only one that counts.  I love you so and miss you too.  Please be careful – hurry home – I’ve got 100 flute dances saved up – can you take that many?

With love and kisses,

Bev to Ande: V-Mail of 6 June 1943

    If you feel so inclined, you can google “Ted Paulfranz.” You will find a handful of references in the Minneapolis area where he (or his son?) was a fire chief. St Olaf College also has an award named after him (or someone by the same name). If “our” Ted, it appears he retired in 1998, so maybe still alive. I think it’s time for you to do a road trip!
