My grandmother, Edna Alice Puckett Gailey, had this slip of paper in her scrapbook for years. While scanning the pages, I found this note that Edna said was written by her mother, Alice Irene Cook Puckett. I remember Edna's father to be a very sweet man. His sensitivity comes to light in this very short note.
"Harve said the next time you stayed all night hereWhile there is no envelope with this note and I can't be sure of the year or the location, I can tell you that Harve and Alice moved from Millsap, Parker County, Texas to Blanchard, McClain Co., Oklahoma sometime after their children were older. Edna and Mildred were both married and still living in Parker Co., Texas when I was a child - in the 40s-60s. Alice died in 1954 and is buried in the Blanchard Cemetery; Harve died at his daughter, Mildred's, home in 1958 and was taken to Oklahoma to be buried beside his wife, Alice.
for you to make your bed up
that he seen where your & Mildred head lay & he cryed
Well I guess that all Write soon
