Mim Rinderknecht's Christmas Letter, 1988


Mim's Christmas 1988 Letter shows that she was the one who went to all the work to get these Candid Questions and Reply pages from Kari, Gabriel, Bernie, Stephen, Naomi, Pete, Rennard, Mary, Tanya, Tom, Vic, (and where is Mim's?) to the Relationship families, after assembling their responses to her prepared questions. I wonder how many more loved ones got to respond to candid questions. But we have these, and they are a treasure indeed, in our Heritage. Maybe you might tell her so. Some of you got them by mail in 1988, but maybe you didn't, and they didn't get to you at all back then--or you were too young? But now old and young can enjoy them forever, as they are on-line. I didn't include Travis Dorn, a good friend of Tom's, though he came and enjoyed the reunion immensely, as he did not continue coming, and most would not recognize him now. If I should put him in, let me know, as our theme, ALL ARE WELCOME, is most certainly true.--Ed.

YOU ARE LOVED, YOU ARE LOVED, YOU ARE LOVED, YOU ARE LOVED, I LUV HUGS, WISHING YOU EVERY HAPPINESS, WISHING YOU A WONDERFUL YEAR, YOU ARE LOVED, A SPECIAL THANKS TO A SPECIAL PERSON!

Hi Everyone!!! I've finally gotten it all together--and hope it's just in time for you all to share it and get some good laughs...and some good ideas...at Christmas time!! (fifty pages of GREAT literary writings...and humor!!)

For those who weren't at the reunion last summer, this is a game we all played, asking each other questions that we've always wanted to know about...since we didn't have time to answer them all at the reunion, we did it by mail, and this is the result!

We wanted you all to share it, since it's all a part of us really getting to know each other! The rest of you are not getting out of answering either, as we will be gathering questions for you all to answer...either by mail, or next summer at the reunion.

I have included my latest correspondence from Cora and Carl, and their letter to the reunion last summer, for their part...and the contribution from Ron [Rinderknecht?], which I thought was so good! The questions to the Rangens, Spildes, and Taylors will be forthcoming...and any of the spouses we missed too!

I learned so much from reading them all as they came!!!! I know you will enjoy it too...and maybe learn something as I did!!!!

In corresponding with Ruthie and Aunty Be, a suggestion (that Liz thought of too) was to have each of us reponsible for certain meals at the reunion, so the same 2 or three aren't doing the majority of planning...Think about it...do you have a special egg dish you do for breakfast?? Or a special sandwich you are good at for lunches...or a special hot dish you do for dinner times?? I'd like to ask each of you to fill out the form below, as best you can, and return it to Aunty Be as soon as it's convenient--since she's the designated boss!! It will help to plan...and we'll all have fun again!!!

Hope you're all enjoying the idea of the birth of Jesus again this season...after all, it's the best thing that ever happened to us all!!

Love, Mimsie

[Form followed with Aunty Be's address to send it to when filled out].

Mim adds to it: "We'll still cover Be's purchasing costs by donations collected at the reunion. Aunty Be has been sent the lists of ideas for "themes" so we'll see what results came through soon! Thanks so much for all the replies and volunteering I received! Everyone wants to help! It's great! And thanks for sending this to Be!!--Love, Mimsie!
