This picture is just awesome because of their clothes and hairstyles. I love every bit of it. I mean, Grandpa has on striped pants! And Mama, your hair!
This is a very strange picture for me emotionally. I never knew my grandparents married to each other. My grandparents were divorced when Mama was a teenager. She got married 3 years after this photo was taken, so it must have been around this time. Grandpa died when I was in 8th grade. Grandma died last October. Consequently, this picture is happy and sad. I’m happy to see their family together. Then I feel sad because I wonder if they were all glad to be together in this picture. And then a little empty because Grandma & Grandpa are gone.
Isn’t it startling how pictures can move you emotionally?
