“Going through old pictures tonight and found this blast from the past…..the “Von Lightsey” family portrait!!!! Oh my!! My aunt (who helped run the Grapevine Opry at the time) had her costume designer make these matching outfits for our family to wear to the shows…..well, Mom wanted her to know how grateful we were so she took us Olan Mills for family portraits!! At one of the opry shows, we were all sitting on the front row…and a performer asked if we were a bowling team?!?! Good times! My dad is a great sport! I think Brent and Susan do look adorable with their orange hair and cute grins! I was getting braces put on the next day, so I was not wanting to show my teeth! (goofy nerd, I know!). Glad Mom had us do this picture…it’s created plenty of laughs through the years! Even at my mom’s funeral four and a half years ago…we had this picture as a part of her slideshow. The church was packed, and when this picture came up on the screen, there was a huge rumble of laughter through the tears! Precious memories, for sure!!!”

“This is a a portrait taken of my family for my tenth birthday. The photographer asked us for a serious look, a la Old Timey photos. I kept giggling so he told me to ‘look more like your Dad!’ Easy enough.”
