Granny and her Sister Boots in the early 1940's
Granny's Sister "Boots" is on the left and Granny is on the right. Granny's name is Levia Leona (pronounced Lee-vee-ah). I really hope i have a girl someday because that is what she will be named :)

This is my Gramps. Wasn't he a handsome catch? He used to clean the house for Granny on Saturdays :) He passed away when i was 4. He was very sick before he passed away and i can remember me and Granny used to sleep on a little cot beside of his hospital bed. Granny still sleeps with a little album of pictures and one of his handkerchiefs under her pillow at night :> He was a major Redskins fan. He never would take Granny to the beach because he said he "had a enough damn sand in his boots" when he fought in the Pacific during WWII. He loved Redman chewing tobacco. He always made sure veterans graves were taken care of, my Dad told me they would even hike up on the mountain to maintain Civil War graves. We miss him lots.
