  1. What a lovely lady! She has such a beautiful smile. She must have been very sweet!

  2. Lori,
    Thanks for your comment. Yes, I wish I knew more about her, but she died just a month after her son (my grandfather) married. This must have been a favorite snapshot, as I have a couple of copies.
