My Grandmother ...

I never knew my grandmother as she died 
before I was born ... 
 from all the stories I have heard about her 
she was truly a remarkable woman 
so loving and so very kind 
and never had a bad word to say about anyone
and she was gifted with much beauty ...
Her name was Annie ...

  2. She is lovely. A New England girl then? I estimate, by fashion, the portrait was made mid-1890s, not much later --an interesting time to come of age. She's part of your genotype now, and your attention honors her.

  10. I'm kinda partial to her name.

    I too didn't get to 'know' my grandmothers...tho I remember them both, but both died before I was 5.

    Your grandmother is beautiful.
