Picture Meme - Day 11

And, so I continue with my Picture Meme that I snagged from hell0kittyangel ...

Day 1 — Your Best Friend ... Toni
Day 2 — Your crush ... James Marsters
Day 3 — Your Parents ... Mum and Dad
Day 4 — Your sibling ... Nick & Tim
Day 5 — Your dreams ... here
Day 6 — A Stranger ... here
Day 7 — Your Ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush ... N/A
Day 8 — Your favorite internet friend ... Annemarie (& Stefan)
Day 9 — Someone you wish you could meet ... The Queen & Prince Philip ... and James, of course
Day 10 — Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to ... College

Day 11 — A Deceased person you wish you could talk to

I dearly loved my Mum's parents.  This picture was taken in the 30s ... when they were in their early 40s.  Granddad died in 1978 (Christmas day) and I wished I could have spoken to him more.  He served during the whole of the first world war ... and then living in the depression ... what an amazingly strong character.  My Grandmother died on her 90th birthday (just after my 21st) in 1982.  She was 11 when she moved to England, from Canada ... although her parents were actually English ... they moved every few years.  She lost her fiance at the beginning of the war, became a VAD and met Granddad at the end.  I remeber her better.

I just wish I could spend some time with them.

My Grandfather was ill by the time i was born, so although I was 14 when he died, we never spoke.  He had served in the Coldstream Guards in the 20s ... this picture was taken about then, when my Grandmother and he got engaged.  She worked in a bomb factory during the war (was a Canary!) ... and then was a chocolate packer.  She died in the early 90s ... but sadly was a very tough person, who did not want to tak of the past - and had no affection at all for any of us.  So, although I knew her ... I never got to chat.


I would love to speak to them all - although have the advantage of knowing that I shall see them again in Eternity.  Hense the icon - both of them became lay-preachers.
