The first copy of the book, Letters from Ralph, was received by the authors on December 17, 2014. After several years in the process it was gratifying to finally see it in its final form. Jubon Juweelen has just ordered a number of them, which should arrive in about two weeks. If you are interested in receiving your own copy, please either call, write or e-mail us and we will see that you receive a copy. The cost is $39.95 and it has several pictures and maps inside. The book contains the letters that Ralph Mouw wrote to his parents and brothers back home before, during and after World War II. The authors (Lee and Bonnie Meier) have inserted glimpses of the history of the times in-between the letters. Ralph was a professor at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa for many years. Sandi, Ralph’s daughter, has a scrapbook of letters that his students wrote to him when he retired. We will start this blog by sharing some of those letters.
