There is nothing forgotten about the faces or place in this photograph, but I felt it was a good picture to share for this week's Sepia Saturday. It is a picture taken of me and my grandfather Diamond Milton Smith on Christmas 1955 in Mt. Vernon, IL when I was two months old. I have always loved and cherished this photo as I have always been told how proud and excited he was of his first grandchild.
Grandpa would have been in his 40's in this photo and it's hard to believe that he was younger than I am today. I was fortunate to have him for so many years and he died in August of 1997. He was not a man to share his feelings, but I always knew he loved me. (And yes, now you can figure out exactly how old I am!) Happy Holidays!
