I teased her that she’s always saying she doesn’t have a story to tell- but that I begged to differ as I plopped down the 14 page manuscript of her life this far!
I have come home with another 10 pages of handwritten notes and several old 1950’s photographs!!! (Great Aunty Gertrude, Bonnie Cleo and Gert’s son LaDell and friends from college- same age/time frame as Daddy John)
I took Bea a copy of the text that I have written based on her stories relayed to me over the years, in large print so that she can see what I’m attempting to do. We had a great visit today- and she seems excited- she is going to look for more photos for me.
AND…. She let me take some photos of her today- AND… she even smiled for me!!!!! (This is HUGE.....) It has been a good day indeed!
Estella just phoned to say that Bea is still smiling about our visit today. Me too!
