Postcard from Aunt Gladyes to her niece Mable Braden Adams, postmark Mar 1955 Downs, KANS., copy in files of D.Z.Stevens:
Dear Ones - I got a message Feb. 27 that your Aunt Mabel had passed away that A.M. The funeral was to be Mar.2 in P.M. I did not go as I was not well enough and the weather uncertain. I would rather remember her as I last saw her at your old home down on the creek in the year you were born. Isn't it dreadful for sisters to be parted that long? Have you seen Uncle Roy lately? He (doesn't?) write so I know nothing about him. We are the only ones left of the family circle. We are having spring like weather after some very severe cold winter. Expect we will have some more before Mar. is gone. Amos and I both have high blood pressure so do not feel too good. Have to diet, no salt at all. Hope you are all well and enjoying your new daughter. Love to all.
Lovingly, Aunt Gladyes
