Inside was printed his Christmas message:
In December 1912, Grandma would have been married, living in Roanoke, and six months pregnant with her second child—my mother.
When she was younger, she received this carnation vase as a Christmas gift at Lithia Baptist Church.
The candle holder beside the vase was also hers, as was the smaller vase in the background. I don't know if they were Christmas gifts or not.
