I have never seen this before
Early in december last year, I heard news of a distant relative whom had now sadly passed away. He was of old age and also spent his last 10 years in a carehome as he had parkinsons disease. I never knew him, nor did I ever meet him. But someone who took care of him, contacted my father (who only had met his half-brother once when they were very young) and now sent him a bunch of old photographs.
This my dear friends is a photograph of my grandmother Alli and my grandfather George. I have never before seen a picture of them together. In fact the only picture I have seen of my grandmother, is a slightly blurry enlarged passport portrait. Framed. A very precious image.
I love how proud my grandfather looks. I would be very proud if I was standing next to my grand mother, apparently she was very very kind.
I wrote about Alli here.
