Wed May 2, 1945

"Gen" ill. Just Evelyn & I on machines. Not so busy though. Lennie called Lorene last night & asked her to marry him when he comes home but her mother objects. Sure hope they can. German troops in Italy surrendered*. Grand news! Duane down this eve! - he & John Rucker. Said he had been thinking of me all day. Said was great, asked me when we were going to be married. Said could hardly wait. Gee, I'm so happy ---- I just can't believe. Am almost afraid to. But I'm sure he wouldn't say it if he didn't mean it.

* and Hitler dead!

I know.. I am hoping that she is still writing in her journal on the day your Grandpa proposes! I can't wait to read that entry! :)

This is my first time over here, and WOW...what an entry!

This is really neat to see into someone's life. What a great thing to share.

Yea!!!! It's about time that something comes out. Can't wait for the real proposal.

Course I do know people who never proposed, it just happened.

I hope it's not like that!
