mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Neb. She is now deceased. Post office wanted to get card to a relative.That's how the 93-year-old relic ended up with Bernice Martin, Ethel's sister-in-law. She said she believed the card had been found somewhere in Illinois. How would you feel receiving mail from a deceased relative. Spooky

That is interesting. That card is now probably a family heirloom.

I read about this story too. Kind of makes you wonder where this letter's been hiding all these years. (And don't you think it would have been nice if the person that forwarded this card wouldv'e said where they found it?!) Yes, I think it would be kind of spooky in a way, although it would bring a lot of discussion at family gatherings lol. It's still nice to know that somebody forwarded it on when they found it, that was a nice thing to do!
