Bittersweet Discovery

Earlier this week, an extended family member found the letter sent to my great-grandparents notifying them of their son Leo’s death in the European theater of WWII. The letter is certainty a treasured family document but also a reminder of a very sad and difficult time. We are lucky, however, to have received some details of the circumstances of Leo’s death. Many other families were not as fortunate.
