The Memory Box
By Mary L. Bushong
1 "Mom," asked Carla, as she pointed to the closet shelf, "what is in that box?"
2 "Those are some things that belonged to your grandfather," said Mom.
3 "May I see them?" asked Carla.
4 "Yes," said Mom, "but you must be very careful. They are old, and we do not want them to be hurt."
5 Mom pulled the green cardboard box off the shelf and set it on the bed. Then she took a tissue and wiped off the layer of dust on top.
6 "It has been a long time since this was opened," she said and sat down next to it.
7 Carla sat on the other side of the box as Mom opened the lid. Inside was an old leather change purse, several yellowed newspaper articles, photos, and a pile of letters bound together with string.
8 Mom lifted the things out one by one. First she handed the coin purse to Carla. "Why don't you look and see what coins are in here," she said.
