|About the Book|
Dearest Kitty is a non-fiction book of letters written from a sailor, Elbert Bert Judkins, to his girl back home, Kathryn Kitty Kimzey during World War II. Kathryn kept all Berts letters their entire married life and when Bert passed away in 2008, she got them out and began reading them. She worked for several years compiling them into manuscript format adding bits of her life, history, thoughts and feelings between the letters. Kathryn passed away in 2012 without seeing her manuscript in print. Her children have followed through with publication so that this bit of history will be around for Bert and Kathryns children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to cherish.
