Not so new postings and still good




Finally a Stella Picture !!

These photo's prompted Bayne to email me the  following:

"I love the pictures that Frances provided. Those pictures brought back so many memories for me.  I remember Frances' family so well, because I used to go to Frances' house so often when I was visiting Nana on school vacations, etc.  Stella was the sweetest lady.  I don't think I ever saw her without a smile." 

Stella died a bit young and most (maybe all) of her grandchildren didn't have the pleasure of knowing her.
I have the same memories of Stella as Bayne,  a very cheerful woman .
