My grandma and grandpa – Just Married!

My grandpa looks so happy in this photo. He loved my grandma so much. Until the end of his life he kept a Valentine’s Day card he had sent to her in February ’44 before they were married in the top drawer of his dresser. He missed her terribly.

    I love how your grandpa is gazing adoringly at your gram in the second photo. Priceless!
