This special Nene Christmas Card was sent by Don Delong to his long-time sweetheart in December 1944. Betty Barrett remembers frequent, agonizing fear for Don's safety, unable to stop from exercising her vivid imagination regarding the dangers that he might find. Her fear was far greater than his, for he knew when he was in danger and while she did not. Their 53 year marriage began in July of 1945. Don carried a picture of Betty in his wallet throughout his life. [picture of Betty age 18]
