I don’t usually post many family photos on my blog but these photos are especially dear to me. I spent some time over the summer with my grandma Betty and grandpa Harold Peterson. I’d listen to their stories like how they met (that’s an especially good one)… about grandpa’s time in the US Army during the Korean Conflict… how grandpa worked his tail off on the family farm… their trip to Europe… grandma’s 49 years as a school teacher… laughing about their trip to Chicago when they visited my husband and I. Grandpa ended the conversation that day with “Yep, we had a pretty good life.” That just made my heart melt with happiness.
Grandma is currently residing in the Bertrand Nursing Home. Grandpa passed away on September 17 (his 86th birthday) this year. Below are a few photographs that grandpa gave me on one of those last visits I had with him.
