Six years ago, we published What About Grandma on AFP and it became an instant classic. Well, we received this letter from the family and wanted to share:
“Wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know that our famous Grandma passed away this past weekend. She loved the picture and the fact that her family was published in the book. I know the picture became a favorite around AFP as well. Over the past couple years as we’ve gathered as a family, we’ve actually had a couple of opportunities to recreate the photo. It’s become quite the inside joke in our family. I’ve attached a few more pictures plus a picture from the last time we were all together this past July (so you know that we really did love and cherish Grandma!). In addition to the six knee-shelf children she had 14 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. She left quite a legacy for us all.”
That she did. This one’s for Grandma.
“Our family went to a history museum somewhere near Amsterdam. As part of the different exhibitions there was a recreation of ancient Rome. I guess they wanted to be as authentic as possible, and this guy was portraying a worker from the bath-houses. My parents thought it would be appropriate to take a photo of all three girls with him.”
