Beloved dead – The grandmother and uncle I never met

image

This is my dad’s mother, Nola and my Uncle Frank, my dad’s oldest brother. My grandmother died not too long after giving birth to her youngest son, Robert and yes, that’s a bit redundant to be Robert Robb. She was weakened in the 1917 flu epidemic.

My uncle was a Lt Commander in the Navy but died at a family Bbq plugging it in on green cement. Hint: don’t plug things in on uncured cement.

One thought on “Beloved dead – The grandmother and uncle I never met

  1. I never got to meet either of my grandmothers. My dad’s mom died of cancer in 1976 and my mother’s mom got hit by a drunk driver when my mom was 12 years old. So *hugs* I know what it’s like.
