RECIPIENT CAN NO LONG PICTURE WHO SENT 45-YEAR-LATE CARD

Maria Kohler of Ann Arbor, Mich., is happy that Anna remembered her with a postcard while in South Carolina, but she cannot quite picture the Anna who wrote the postcard. It was 45 years ago.

Kohler, 88, received the card last week at the Glacier Hills Retirement Home where she lives."In one way, I'm glad to get it," Kohler said of the card, which was originally postmarked June 11, 1947. "It was signed, `Love, Anna.' I don't know anyone by that name."

The card features a photograph of the gateway to St. Michael's Churchyard in Charleston, S.C., and tells of a "long, hot" shopping trip.

"I wish I could picture someone named Anna," she said.
