Here is the other side of the issue. The daughter/granddaughter can be seen on the internet asking for information about CBM John Goggins, hero. The requests were wanting to know anything about him or his actions in October of the year the package was sent.
The family recently decided to sell this parcel wrapper to a dealer aware it was going to a home that would understand, value it and perhaps spread the word about it. It was not sold cheaply and I speak not about just money.
So lets fast forward to a couple of years from now when this item may strike the market again. I am not sure at that time recontacting the family about this loved item which brings them great sadness would be welcome. Peace was made and the item let go.
Now, while this item had and has major significance to the family, it is also a very significant item of postal history and WWII due to many individual facets. Facets the family lived if not understood before selling it, before giving it a loving good-bye, while keeping their and our hero in their hearts.
