Grandmom Gallagher as a little girl

In my mother’s family, certain photos are highly prized. One is "the hat photo" that I posted Saturday; another is this picture of my grandmother as a little girl.

I think of this photo on days like today, when all the trees and bushes are covered in blooms and the weather is warm enough for short sleeves.

At the funeral this week, I’m going to try to find out when and where this picture and the ones I posed earlier were most likely taken. At our funerals, someone also usually makes a slide show of great pictures of the deceased, and maybe I’ll be able to find a few more gems to share.
