Kenjiro and Miyuki “Kay” Kida Family Collection

Envelope addressed to Miyuki "Kay" Kida in Nyssa, Oregon. Letter from "Grandma" (Sarah "Sade" Pyatt) to her "children" (the Kida family) dated November 19, 1943. Mrs. Pyatt suffered a stroke and was writing from the West Klickitat Hospital; she addressed the letter incorrectly, so there was a letter from Wilma Thornton, the hospital manager, included, which gave a brief update on Mrs. Pyatt's health. Mrs. Pyatt asks how the Kidas are doing and once again wishes she could see them again. However, she also believes they may never see each other again. She is worried about the state of their ranch in White Salmon. She says she is beginning to feel better.
