Pearl their first-born and eldest daughter relates: "Christmas for my parents and their parents were often sparse because times were hard living off the plains."
Before electricity, the tree was covered with wax candles. After the candles were lit at the special Christmas Eve service, two men stood on each side ready to snuff out the flames if the branches caught on fire.
Greeting and thanks for writing so nice to Grandma. Grandma loves you all, old and young.
You are all dear, yes, the Lord bless you all. I love you all here and also wherever you are.
Under His Wings my soul shall abide, Safely abide forever. (Praise His NAME)
(Grandma) Mrs. Bergit Stadem
