Over a month ago, I wrote a post about my great grandparents, titled “Girl of My Dreams”. Since then, I’ve received some pretty cool things by way of some family connections that I’ve never really been aware of before. My Aunty Glenda passed away less than a month ago, and some of those connections have come because of that. We will all really miss her, but I will always remember her for her funny stories and constant laughter. At a time like this, I always spend more time thinking about my family – those I know and those I never had the chance to spend time with.
As I mentioned, I’ve received a couple things that I wanted to share here. I hadn’t thought to include a link to the song “Girl of My Dreams” itself, but I was sent one. Listening to it and just imagining what my great grandparents were going through is enough to bring a tear to my eye.
The other thing that I’ve received that is probably one of the best things I think I now own is this photo of my Grandpa Jack, singing with his brothers Harold, Michael, and Joseph. I’ve heard they were very talented.
I really enjoy pieces of family history like this one. Though it is from before my time, it is still a part of my story, so I wanted to share it here.
