"Who are their People? My grandmother used to ask me this whenever we discussed anyone. She wanted to know family connections. Like her I want to know "My People". This blog is about that discovery.

Friday Funny~Grandmom and Frank

   On of my current projects is to scan and file all the pictures that were found at my Grandmother's house after her death. While sorting through them, this picture of my maternal Grandmother Azile Juanita Daughrity Roberts Sullivan (1921-2009) and step Grandfather, Frank Emerson Sullivan, Jr. (1923-2004) bought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes.

Frank and Azile Sullivan

  This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of them. It was taken on the monorail  while visiting Disney World in the early 1990's. 
 I absolutely love the laughter on their faces and miss sharing moments like this with them.
