On Roben Washing Rd. 1948 and beautiful still
I’m looking at Aunt Laura’s picture. I’m reminded of a time she came to visit when I was four years old. There she was that old woman that used to pinch our little cheeks and give us a great big smack-u-roo. “Quick!” I yelled to my sister Debby. “Run and hide!” We both scurried to our room she in the closet and I under the bed. It was no use Aunt Laura found us. How I wish she were here to do that now. Instead of running to hide I would run to greet her and live in the moment so precious. I can only hope she knew how much I really loved her. Something was different this time someone was with her. Someone I’d never met before. It was Grandma Ingersoll. It was the beginning of something wonderful, awesome, splendid, fantabulous, marvelous, fantastic, beautiful, grand, and a host of other words I don’t have time to write. Then came the spending nights at grandma’s house, the letters and phone calls. She was without question the best. Though I was only a little girl I had a great big heart. I’ll never forget the time my heart told me to write grandma a letter. I sat down at the kitchen table. Pencil and paper in hand I wrote – Grandma I love you. Grandma you’re wonderful. I can’t wait to spend the night. My heart told me something was missing. I had a nickle I’d been saving for something special. I taped it to the letter and told her to buy herself something. I wonder what you could buy with that. You can’t buy anything with that these days, but maybe in the sixties you could get a piece of candy or gum with it. Laura and grandma kept so many things I wish I could have found that letter. How I wish Grandma and Laura were here

Grandma and Aunt Laura never drove which was a common thing in those days. Mostly the men did all the driving. Except in Grandma Losche’s case. She was married to Elizabeth’s son Robert. She would drive Grandma And Aunt Laura around in Harry’s dodge while he was at work. Looks like they had a lot of fun together. I wish I could have been with them. Would to God I had known them when they were young and full of life! To have laughed with them! Cried with them! To have gone hiking to see Robert. To have been with them at Christmas, family dinners and get-togethers. It seems the time I had with them was too little too late.

A beautiful couple on their Silver Wedding Anniversary
This a picture of my GG Aunt Laura and Uncle Harry Wolf in Dec. 22, 1935 on their Silver Wedding Anniversary. Aunt Laura with her brown hair and eyes, and her wine colored dress was certainly the picture of a beautiful woman. Uncle Harry in his blue suit was a handsome gentleman. Aunt Laura and Uncle Harry were married in 1910 Aunt Laura was 17 and uncle Harry was 21. The two of them were happily married for many years. Uncle Harry certainly loved Aunt Laura and I can see why she was beautiful outside and inside. He treated her like a queen and called her his little dolly and she treated him like a king. Too bad there aren’t more marriages like theirs. I can only wish that mine had been so wonderful.
