I have only the most wonderful memories of my dear cousin Adam. My dad was his uncle Charlie, his mother's brother, and as children we spent every holiday together, and visited often.
On my 60th birthday he sent me a wonderful letter reminding me of our childhood. He was 13 years older, and loved to tease me. His favorite torture was pulling the sash on my dress and then tugging at my ponytails. There were days that he chased me around the house trying to get me. Oh how I loved the torture, and oh how I loved him.
The Korean war came , and my dear "Nunny" was sent to Korea. I wrote to him every week, and, amazingly, he answered each letter. Oh, the excitement when those letters came. I was the only girl in my class who got letters from a soldier, and those letters made me feel so, so special.
When he met the lovely Ruth, our whole family was thrilled, and as a teenager I couldn't wait for the wedding.
I still have the film my dad took of the wedding, and the beautiful couple dancing the first time as man and wife.
But, time moves on and distance separates us. We have our families and our lives change. If lucky we are left with wonderful memories of a time long gone. Unquestionably, those beautiful
thoughts of my "Nunny" will always be in my heart.
