I had forgotten that Sandy and I had an allowance back in 1975. Dad must have sent the money and enclosed a letter, mostly reminding us to be good, learn how to save, and to remember to pray for Sam-Sam.
Interesting to note: Dad spelled my name "Nicky", and Mom spelled it "Nickie". This explains why I continued to spell my name differently for much of my life! I've been using the "Nickie" spelling since college.

|Love the "copyright" info on the back!|
|Two-scene interior with Dad coming home and surprising Mom.|
|Beautifully rendered, fashionable Mommy portrait|
|Very 3-dimensional marker and pen drawing of two kids ice skating. With a green-painted tree, and birds.|
|Awesome illustrated homework, with a cool essay on what Sandy wanted for her house in 20 years!|

A lot of these drawings depict crosses and gravesides. It shows our childhood struggle to process Sam-Sam's death, and make sense of what that meant to us.
|Not sure if I drew this one, but I distinctly remember struggling to comprehend the passage of time - as in, "Sam-Sam died the day before the day before yesterday".|
|Is this showing Christ? Or is it a depiction of Samantha, in the hopes that she would come back to life, like Jesus?|
|Resurrection scene? Or an early TARDIS?|
|This is interesting...is this a child in bed asleep, or is it Sam-Sam inside her coffin?|
