My mother, Harriet Duncan Claycomb, was in Illinois with her father – I don’t know the details of why she was there, but it appears it was at his request. She’s sending me birthday greetings, updating Dad on her sister Barbara’s plans, and adding a little romantic closing.
There’s more about Daniel Pierce here. Thanks to cousin Charity for reminding me of this big birthday.
My sister often celebrated her birthday during the Memorial Day weekend, so this is my salute to her birth of 74 years ago.
She was definitely the prettiest. And had that naturally curly hair that I could only dream of.
She was creative, considerate, lots of fun, and a great older sister.
Her life was only 53 years long, hardly time to get things figured out. I’m still working on it for myself. Miss you, Sis.
