Re: Robert Wadlow 8'11.1" tall Alton,il.
Hello!! I was so surprised and excited to get your email! Wow Finland the internet is so fascinating!!
I sent a copy of your note to my Mom because she actually got to meet him when she was very small. I remember her telling the story of how he had to lean way down to go through doors of houses. She remembers how one time he asked her to get him a drink of water while they were at their Grandmother's house, so she goes in and get's him a regular glass and fills it with water. When she came back with it everyone laughed and great-grandma went back into the kitchen to get him a pitcher of water because that was a drink to him. She has told me that his hands are something she remembers really well, I guess they were huge and he was very embarrased of them, so if you will look at most of the pictures of him , his hands are turned in and facing back as if to hide them. We have some family pictures of him I have no way of emailing them to you because mypicture scanner is not working.
I will send more information if my Mom has any more she remembers about him
Thanks for you note. Write again , anytime!!
