ScanCafe customer Doris shares a few scanned photos from the past and reflects on childhood days spent with a grandmother who was the ‘glue’ in the family.
My grandmother was a very integral part of our lives. We stayed at her house a lot, playing with our cousins. We had a playhouse in an old grain shed, and she would bring our meals to us out there. We made cakes out of mud and used blue starch for the icing. She was a wonderful grandmother, loving and caring. She has been gone since 1984, and of course, we have many wonderful memories of times spent with her – including the family dinner in one of the pictures here. Our parents are gone also but we still talk about all of them and the good childhood days when life was much simpler. When the grandmother of a family dies, you realize that she was the glue that held the family together. You don’t see other members of the family then as much as you once did. And some of the people in these pictures are no longer with us today.
