John Frederick (Freddie) BEAL was born in 1932. He died in 1935 when he was three years old from strep throat. "My mother had called frantically to meet them at the intersection - right now - they needed more blood at Children's Mercy Hospital where Freddie was -- he had had 4 transfusions -- one from Daddy, one from me, and 2 from Bud. It was in a day when it had to match exactly and it was a rare blood -- to hurry -- I was married and we had a rattletrap truck -- but we hurried -- I got there -- they did the transfusion -- it was a side by side thing like they used to do -- I remember the doctor saying -- we've done all we can do -- so it was 5 days -- 5 transfusions -- till Freddie died. A few months later penicillin was available to cure strep throat. It must have been summer -- I don't remember dates of anything. He was just a baby. John Frederick Beal -- 3 years old."
Then a little later, Mabel sent another note with dates she had found. All Mabel said was "Hope you are ok -- Mabel."
Enclosed with that note was an index card that simply said,
