bittersweet memories ...
The photo above taken in 1950, was in the belongings of a Great Aunt, who passed away this month at the age of 93.
From the left it shows her father John (who I knew as Gampy), and her mother Ethel (who I knew as Old Nan), who passed away many, many years ago.
From the right is my Nan Iris, who is no longer with us, and my Grandpa Eric, who at the age of 96 is alive and well, and lives in Mallorca.
The young girl in the middle (aged 10) is my lovely Mum, who sadly passed away this month back in 2002.
Old photos are bittersweet, a mixture of both pain and pleasure.
