Remember When – 1/22/09

I snuck this photo of my dad from some of the photos my grandmother (his mom) had kept for so many years. My grandmother died in October 2004 at the age of 96 from complications due to a stroke. On the day of the funeral everyone gathered afterwards at my brothers house. I went to her room, I knew where she kept her photos. I started going through the small shoe box where she kept them and I took this photo along with a few others. I am the only real photographer in the family and knew I’d be the only one who would try and restore it and take care of it properly. It was in pretty good shape to begin with, I did an old photo quick restore, changing it from a yellowed photo to more of a sepia, and sharpened a bit. I have heard so many stories, I think my dad was born somewhere in California best I can remember, but then my grandmother divorced and moved to Dallas, TX. My fathers dad was an alcoholic and then the next one, his step-dad, was also an alcoholic, my grandmother divorced him as well, both dads were very mean and abusive to my dad and grandmother. I never knew my grandfather, dads side or mother’s side, so I never had a papa. I called my grandmother Nanny as did all the kids. She became GrandNanny to all the grandkids, then we all called her that, because my mother was called Nanny too, LOL Anyway my dad is now 81 years old.
