    I really love the artwork on this one… this subject reminds me of my Dad’s father – I’m not sure Grandma ever knew the extent of his devotion to her.

      Gramma had at least a dozen pictures like this in her photo album—relatives, neighbors, friends—all those bright, shiny young men, so innocent and eager, with no idea what they were heading into. They all break my heart.

      This one seemed to be powerful for several people. I never know what will or won’t make a connection. I hope it was meaningful for you.

        My grandfather served in WWI. He died at 93. At 83 or 84, he was featured on the front page of the Chicago Tribune as the oldest Chicagoan to ever graduate from high school (night school). He had to leave school in 8th grade to help support the family. He was one of my heroes. I love using his story to let people know that it is never to late to achieve one’s goals.
