Around 1939 my grandfather Gomer Welch a air plane pilot, a tool maker for GM and an all around great person to learn from. He built a simple box made from cedar. The story is that he made it for his wife Katheryn, aka Doll. Doll gave the box to her daughter Dee Ann, aka Dee Dee. Doll filled this box up with doll clothes and gave the box and the clothes to Dee Dee. Dee Dee kept the box for years, not sure how many. Some how the box ended up in my mothers hands. All this happened way before I was born. I remember seeing the box around the house for years. I can’t remember what was stored in the box, but probably pictures.
