Oh, yes, I can see them smiling and my Great Grandma Sadie is in front of the crowd. She died in 1998 at age 95 and every since I can remember she was always trying to get me to go to Texas with her but, I never went. Teenagers miss so much when they think they know everything already(smile). Her favorite thing to do was to have me pull out her old trunk and pretend she wanted to throw away old stuff but she never threw away anything. There were hundreds of old photographs in that trunk and she would show me each picture and there was a story to go with each one.
I like to think the book, especially the first one I did in 2006, was a tribute to those afternoons long ago with Grandma Sadie. The first book was 96 pages and had over 115 photographs and 95% of them came from Grandma Sadie's trunk.
