Letter to Mom

Postcard Friendship Friday: Letter to Mom

Here is a collage that I made of my husband's grandfather, Forrest Pointer.  The postcard is a photo postcard taken of Forrest when he was in the U.S. Navy in World War II.  The letter is one that he wrote when he was at the Alameda Air Base in California dated 2 Jul 1942.  He writes of the goings-on without being too specific, and he indicates that he's "in hopes" of seeing his brother Donald before he has to leave Alameda.  And who his mother?  Well, the beautiful Pearl Williams Pointer, of course!

  2. This is a great collage! You put such a beautiful spin on family history!

    I love the portrait fun
