Elizabeth Anne VanderPutten - My Mother and Uncle Robbie

I Remember a Letter my Mother Wrote to Uncle Robbie

VanderPutten, April 6, 2004
Uncle Robbie was my mother's only brother. They were very close. He never married and my mother's family was his family. He was "our" Uncle Robbie

During the Second World War, he served in the U.S. Army. We asked him what his job was. "Catch bombs," he told us running around the room demonstrating how he'd catch them in his arms.  When we were little we sort of believed him. 

At the end of the war, my mother wrote this letter to him.
