Vaya Con Dios Betty Kimball
Yesterday I read about the passing of Betty Kimball at the age of 97. Betty worked at the Walt Disney Studios in the Ink and Paint department. There she met Ward Kimball and they got married and were married for 66 years. Ward was definitely a character and it must have been a roller coaster ride. But based upon drawings and stories, Ward was deeply in love with Betty and Betty was his team mate in their adventures. From Ward and Betty's estate is this collection of postcards from Ward's trip to Greenfield Village in 1948 with Walt. Ward and Walt visited this museum in Detroit on their way back home from the Chicago Railroad Fair.
Ward sent this home to himself, reminding him of his love for Betty.
