They weren’t nonsensical letters, after all. After a lot of studying and then posting the index cards online, someone was able to finally crack her code. Within 15 minutes of posting the image of her grandmother’s index card, Janna had her answer.
That had bothered the family for over 20 years, and a stranger cracked it in just 15 minutes.
The back was more complicated, but it seemed to be an additional prayer from her grandmother, Dorothy Holm, to God as she passed away. It used the same “acronym” cypher, although it wasn’t solved completely. Here is a full transcript of what has been deciphered so far. The full words represent individual letters on the back of the card that have been solved while the capital letters are still currently unsolved:

It’s stunning to see that a woman, in her final days, wasn’t just randomly writing letters on notecards, but creating a touching message straight from the heart.
Please share Dorothy’s final moving words with others. And see if anyone you know can “crack” the unsolved letters from the back of the card above.
