Start Again At The Beginning Ema Mims? Gettysburg in the 1930s and 1940s?

"Ema Mims?  Ever so gently now...steady old gel.  It's alright, ...  Ema...there, there darling...here take the tissue? Wipe your tears, now?"

"Ema...Ema tell us about your memories?  Why not  at the beginning, the very beginning... as you feel comfortable dear and as far and as wide as your memory will carry you, darling".   There, there now,...it's alright, go on now...". 

"What's that?  Yes, Ema, I'll hold your hand.  Good, good!  I'd love to hear of your winters"...first...

Read on gentle readers, of  "Ema Mims"...enjoin her in reveries and memories as she shares of life and, particularly her life in the Gettysburg she knew during the 1930s and 1940s!   You may just find yourselves enchanted as you enter a world of  Emas' , our parents' and grandparents' yesterday. 

Soon, very soon, we promise all the world of beauty shall pour forth...and we must make haste for time, memory and fancy is fleeting!

In honor of the first and third loves of my childish youth.
