Today I am winding back the clock a long way....it looks like I was only about 6 months old. Ann and I are with Auntie Jeanie, our great great Aunt.
For those who have read the story of my 'Elenor Jean' Quilt, you will know Auntie Jeanie as both her and her sister Sis, raised my grandmother and 2 of her brothers after the death of their mother. The dedication of these 2 women to raise their sister's children was incredible. Auntie Jeanie and Auntie Sis never married or had children of their own, but they had the love of the children that they raised as their own, and were a very important part of our family.
