Last year, I posted Grandpa’s Christmas cards, at least the ones I have. This year, I’m going to post the Christmas cards Lad and Marian sent. Since I have many more of those, I will be posting them for the entire month of December. I will also post a few of my favorites from Grandpa in correct chronological order. Enjoy.
This is a composite photo of Grandpa’s entire family in 1947.

The message on the right reads: From the “old root” himself up thru all the branches, out to the newest, tiniest twigs, warmest greetings !
