Thank you for the nice pictures! Beautiful Christmas tree with all the family treasures on it and a sweet dog too. Were Bessie and Annie sisters of my Grandma Mary (Molly)? Neat pic from 1939 too. Love,Mary Fran
Yes, Aunt Bessie and Grandma were Aunt Molly’s sisters. I don’t have any pictures of the three of them together. That picture was probably taken after Aunt Molly died.
Merry Christmas. Mary
Quite the photo montage! Love the picture of Aunt Bessie and Grandma.
It’s August so I needed a little Christmas….thanks ,great post. Are there any pictures of Molly? It is amazing how much Sr. Casimir looked like Grandma.
I have two pictures of Molly. One taken when she was a young girl – she was very pretty. The other is with Aunt Nan.
