“I grew up in New Bedford and move away in 2001 to make a better life for my children. My dad passed in 1990 ,had lived for many years at 56 Peckham St. with his girlfriend.
When she began to be ill, her only child moved her out of state where she passed away also. I was told a lot of their possessions had been thrown away when she moved out. I am looking for one thing in particular that I am hoping someone rescued before it hit the dump.
The year would have been around 2009 and the thing I hope to find is my father’s military flag from his casket. It was in a beautiful wooden case. Maybe someone out there can help me get this back?
