I am thankful that on the anniversary, today Nov, 21 of my Grandmothers death 9 years ago today, that I got to know My great grandparents, my grandparents, my parents and my sibling. And on top of that I have a picture taken of my Great Great Grandmother back in the 1960,s when she was very old. My family is from a small town and seems to have settled there sometime in the 1800,s. My great grandmother also passed away on my birthday NOVEMBER 19TH, 5 Years ago at the age of 100. I know it sounds weird but if she were alive it would be a topic for me to tease her about. I am talking about my 67 year old Fathers Grandmother here. My Great Grandparents were married just short of 80 years. Yes my father was 62 when his grandmother died. IMAGINE THAT! I am so lucky to have known all of my family, who they were and where they came from. I am at a point in my life that financially and career wise I do not know where I am going. It is nice to know who I am. To change the words from a country song:
I am Roy and Julia's great grandson. I am the spitting image of my father, and was the apple of my grandmothers eye. If nothing else goes well I know just exactly who I am. Today I believe I will drive down home to the cemetary and put a rose on the graves of my Great Grandmother and Grandmother on the anniversary of My grandmothers death 9 years ago.
