Last summer, when my mother was "dying again," she had me pack up a bunch of old photos, documents, and other memorabilia in a suitcase and take it home with me. I'm ashamed to say that I'm just now beginning to sort through it all. And my God, what a treasure trove it is! (By the way, I just saw my mother this morning and she's perfectly fine.) This is my absolute favorite photograph of those I've looked through thus far. It's dated August 4, 1937, and depicts my grandparents and their three children. The little girl sitting on my granddaddy's lap is my mother.
