My grandparents Phyllis & John Badders and their 4 children. From L to R, Top: Susan, Jeffery, and Ginny (my mother). Bottom: Phyllis, Jack, and John. Unfortunately, my grandfather John passed away just a few years after this photo was taken, so I never had the pleasure of knowing him. He was very much loved, and continues to be missed by those he left behind. View full size.
