Go Keep it. She would have wanted it that way. The uniforms were navy blue. Sure they were a light-weight wool I think. They cost $15.00. Worn on Sunday, and to town. We didn't go downtown often. They were very pretty. Black shoes and stockings. Wish I could visit with you. We have lots to visit about! Maybe sometime I'll visit my niece down there, Dorothy Lee Calfee. It's hard for me to write. I shake like all old 84 year olds! Ha! Just keep the picture and love it. Anything I can help you with, write me. Wishing you the best, a sister in Christ, Lillie Mae Write."
