Dear Miss Beerey -.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve received
your comforting letter conscerning [concerning] my Sons
death. Pvt. Francis N. Wolf in Italy.
I’ve tried so hard to answer your letter but
sorrow and grief over took me. I could not
get it accomplished.
I don’t mean to bother you as you have
been more than kind to write to me as
it was. but please will you tell me just
this one thing. Were you with him when he
died and did he ask you to write to
me. Please will you answer this question
for me. As it will mean so much to
me if you do.
I have been in very ill health since I received
that sad news that he was gone.
I have lost one of the most lovable Sons any
mother can ever loose [lose]. And I don’t belive [believe]
any thing is worse for any mother to bear
than losing their Sons and never to even
to have them home to care for them when
they need them
Our home will never be the same as we
both his Dad and I miss him so much.
Pleas [Please] I ask again will you answer that
question just for my sake. “Please” So I
may have a little more comfort
Thanking You and may God bless
you and keep you.
I am Sinceerely [Sincerely]
Mrs. Pearl Wolf
