This is a photo of my Mom, Eleanor, when she was almost 4 years old...that would have been in 1929. The original photo is hand tinted...and must have been quite an extravagance for my Grandma, who was a widow & single Mom back then. The entire photo also includes my Uncle Ed...Mom's big brother. I love this photo of her...little Eleanor...look at that huge bow in her hair!
Here's my Mom at the age of 21...in 1946...not yet married & looking forward to her future. Mom & Dad married in August of 1951...and I was their first baby...a chubby little girl...in November 1952. My brother, Bob, joined us in April 1956...and I threw a tantrum and tried to block the door when they brought him home...I wanted a sister.
Turns out it was better to have a little brother to get in trouble...but that's a whole other story!
Mom crossed over in November, 2008...almost 20 years to the day that Dad crossed over. She never recovered from his death & I know they are together somewhere over the rainbow.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
