Photograph Showcase: Grandma Deane

DUVAL, Deane, mid90s

Today is the second anniversary of my Grandma’s death.

I miss hearing her voice over the phone.

This last year I have built a portion of her tree that she started working on 35 years before her death.  Once that brick wall tumbled and got me into France, I was off!

Even though she is gone, somehow, I feel closer to her than ever.  I feel her with me as I work on finding the precious ancestors we share.  Every single person I add to our tree feels like a team victory for the two of us.

In honor of my Grandma today, I share this photo taken during her later years.  This is the face I picture when I think of my Grandma.

  1. The people we loved stay in our hearts and memory forever. When they reappear in a memory or even their words in our minds, I see it as a blessing.

  2. Your grandmother (a cutie in that photo) must have been the same sister’s age as my sister. I’d better get crackin’ & give my sweet sister a phone call. She’s 13 years older than me & almost like a 2nd mother. I had a happy, secure, if slightly crazy, home life!
