This is the story of LESLIE WEBBER, a retired physician with interesting adversities, from the depression years to the 90's. The writing was mostly for family, but at this time I have been encouraged to publish it. The most of the material is from memory, but augmented by letters written over a 35 year period, which my mother had saved. I was a "letter writer" from the time I left home at age 15 until my mother's death. I was not aware she had saved them all until they were discovered after her death in a closet. My mother and grandmother were instrumental in my success by their persistent prayers in my behalf. From my perspective, coincidence, does not answer many details of my story as well as divine intervention. Windows seemed to open in reasonable times when doors were closed. The reader can make up his or her own mind.
