Picture In Picture - Grandparents

Picture In Picture

“This is my mom and dad. My dad was visiting for his birthday and just finished opening his presents, so my mom and I both had our cameras out. He got on his iPad and was looking at a picture of my cousin’s newborn, when my mom told him to hold up the iPad, so she could take a picture of her. My mom does not know anything about computers, and my dad has to download her photos from her camera and either print them out or pull them up for her to look at, so the idea that he already had a digital photo seemed to escape her. They have been married for over 46 years, so Dad was wise enough not to comply without arguing.”

The Thing

“This pic was taken at mom’s nursing home a few years ago. Funny thing is, mom’s just sitting there with a big smile on her face as though she has no idea that “thing” is behind her…”

A Kiss From Grandma - Grandparents

A Kiss From Grandma

“My son, Conner, was just learning how to kiss… thus the open mouth.  His great great Grandma Kiser just loved kissing babies.  If it were on video, it should be in slow motion with soft music playing.”

Look Who’s Talking - Friends

Look Who’s Talking

“I found this photo while going through old albums for my grandmother’s viewing.  The couple in the picture were friends of my grandparents.  The woman made puppets and put on puppet shows for kids’ birthdays.  According to one family member, “She wasn’t very good.”  And apparently, she was a little too attached to those puppets.”

Granny’s Got A Gun - Behind The Awkwardness

Granny’s Got A Gun

“In 2010, we sent you this spunky picture of our sweet Grandma Nadine (taken years earlier). We are saying goodbye to this beautiful woman on Tuesday, but are forever grateful to AFP for memorializing her spunky attitude on your board game. She got a kick out of being a part of the AFP family! Thanks for sharing our fun memories!”

We are sending our love to Lisa and to her legendary Grandma. Her spirit and spunk in this photo will live on forever.
