Wordless Wednesday - Pop

I've been thinking about my granddad a lot lately. He passed away when I was 19 and he used to spend so much time with our family.

This shot was taken during our last "good Christmas" together in 2003. He passed away Dec 27th of 2004, but was totally out of it on Christmas day.

Wasn't he cute? He was a marine and I only have a few pictures of him from when he was young-but he was seriously hot! :)

As I was searching through pictures, I found this. This is my mama holding me when I was a baby. (And if you're trying to guess by the outfit she's wearing-I was born in 85) :)

Fun flashback photos!

I've been thinking of my grandma a lot lately. She has Alzheimer's disease, and really only can say, "Come, come, come" over and over again. I miss her, the real her.

Absolutely love both of those photos. Your pop looked great! My boys' great grandma is 95. I'm so glad that they will have known her for a long time! And that photo of your mom? Fantastic! Looks like a circa '70s photo!
