The historian in me says that's the fun stuff. When you're ready, that is.
Great picture of your mom and sister. I can see the resemblance to you, too!
And even Laila!
I love old family photos. So fascinating.
Definitely a strong resemblance to you! That's a lovely photo.
Beautiful photo! And yes, they both look very much like you.
The letters are from all kinds of people, and some may be interesting, but I really don't want to read them. I started to do that, and the one I read from when we were 18 was to my mother and was very hateful. Can't unread it once it is read, so I will task my niece to do the sorting since the majority of them are from the Indiana folks and they would like them back. My brother's family were fairly regular since they didn't live close to my mother, and my mother didn't do internet.
I will get more pleasure out of the pictures and will try to dig up one from me at the same age as my mother. Until then, I am not convinced that we look alike. You know how you get an image in your mind and can't shake it. :)
I see a lot of Betsy in your Mom and Laila in her sister.
Lailah and Honora were born on the same day!
