So Long Uncle Jim

There were a great number of post cards in the collection of my great-grandmother Jessie Burrows Benton and I was thumbing through them when I came across a much more recent one.  The one I will post today comes from 1959.  It's addressed from my Uncle Jim to his grandmother Jessie.  I found it a little touching as my uncle died this past Saturday.  So this morning I'd like to share a little window to happy times past when my Uncle Jim was a boy of 14.  Cheryl, who he mentions in the card, is my mother.
