Memories of my grandma.

My grandmother was born and raised in North Central Missouri during the depression. She would tell how her father often spoke of his dream of moving the family West to California, but couldn't because they had no transportation for a family of eight.

The only words I can imagine

are Intestinal Fortitude.

A Face Full of Hope

She's still beautiful, and judging from her side-button trousers she has a sense of style; she's known far better days. Things are bad, but she can still muster a smile. She's not beaten yet. I'd love to know where she and her family ended up, and what the coming years brought her.

Beautiful Face

Starting over = she will make it !!

Any one know the history of this family?
