My Grandparents

I was scanning an old album of photographs I have yesterday, and I decided to try and inspire some of you to do the same by posting a few photographs of my grandmother and my grandfather with me when I was a little girl.  These pictures brought back the feelings I had as a little girl for my grandparents.  Although I have only vague memories of my grandfather who died in May, 1957,  when I was almost five, looking at these pictures reminded me of how much time I spent with him as a small child.  My grandparents lived right near us in Parkchester until we moved to Elmsford in January, 1957, just a few months before my grandfather died.  I must have seen them almost every day.  We also spent summers together in a rented cottage on Long Pond near Mahopac, NY.  Here are a few of those photographs.

  1. Great pictures. I was only two when Grandpa died so I don’t remember him at all. Your expression in the second to last one reminds me of Nate. Great pictures. Never realized how short Grandpa was.

    • I’d love to hear about your trip—I love Italy! And yes, please send pictures! 🙂 (I was trying to be subtle without nagging, but I am glad you got the message. I hope the others did as well.)
