Nurse Ruth Beery: Correspondence with Next of Kin (Letter 41)

Fort Walton, Fla.
March 26, 1946

Dear Capt. Beery;
Thank you so very much
for your kind and
welcoming letter, concerning
my son, Pvt. Lawrence Rogers.
I had often wondered how
my son had to go away.
Now I feel much better
since hearing from you, to
know that he had the
care and comfort of you
nurses and doctors, before
passing away.
I greatly appreciate any
information received concerning
him, so if you should
know anything or know any
of his friends who do, would
you please let me know?
And thank you again for your
nice letter, I am much happier,
and shall never forget

Thank you again, and God
Bless you.

Yours very truly
Mrs. Mattie J. Rogers
Fort Walton, Florida
