This is my Grandma's oldest sister, Genevieve. Everyone called her aunt Veva. I absolutely love this picture! I can't even really tell you why. I have always felt a connection with the woman in this photo. Maybe it is because we are both the oldest sister. I can see by what she wrote on the front and back, she had a sense of humor. My Grandma was born in New Mexico. Her heritage was Mexican, and she was also a native to the American tribe of the Navajo.
This is my Grandma Josephine (my daddy's mama) with her brother John and my aunt Mary (my daddy's oldest sister) when she was little.
This is my Grandma, again, with my aunt Mary and uncle Joe, I think.
I will never forget looking at and admiring my grandma in photos. I always noticed that she had a little tummy. Then as I got older I realized she was pregnant in most of her photos. She had 11 children; nine of which had lived.
