Nurse Ruth Beery: Correspondence with Next of Kin (Letter 16)

St Charles Mo.
Feb 25, 1946

Dear Miss Berry,
Being a
neighbor of Mrs. Hubert
I am writting [writing] to you for
her. She is indeed grateful
to get your kind letter and
know or hear from some-
one who cared for her son
Daniel. It is very hard
on us Mothers not to
know in what way or
condition their last few
hours were. We know
the nurses that cared for
our boys when they are
injured so seriously
are very brave and may
God bless you always
Mrs Hubert would

appreciate if you recall
if her son requested any-
thing or was he unconsious [unconscious]
Just knowing the facts can
and does ease one’s mind.
Also the location of the
hospital and if you know
the name’s of any of his
buddies that was with
him at the time. Any
information you can write
her will be so helpful.
I hope sometime if you
are ever out our way
would be so glad
to meet you.

Thanking you.
Very Sincerely
Mrs. Jos. Painter
