Talking It Over -- Learning of triplets from afar

Email News Alerts

I would like to add a comment before you read the next letter from my father. On Oct. 31, 1942, my mom gave birth to triplet girls. They did not know they were having triplets until she delivered. My father was notified of the birth through a telegram sent on Nov. 13, 1942, and he was just as surprised as everyone else. His only glimpse of his new little girls was a picture of the three babies in the old Morris Hospital nursery. During this time, there was an influenza epidemic in this area.
