Update for Aunt Minnie

I have to give a big shout out of thanks to 2 of my blog friends, for setting me on the path, of finding a new home for Aunt Minnie, here with her family.

Blogs "Far Side of Fifty" and  "Forgotten Old Photos"  are the same wonderful woman.  She got in touch with a blog friend of hers that is a superman at tracking down relatives.  His blog "Intense Guy" are on my list of blogs I like.  Do check them out.  He, in turn, sent much information I could use.

This morning I called Bessie's ( The little girl on her Daddy's knee)  oldest grandson, Tim.  He was thrilled to hear about the photo.  "Intense Guy" had emailed me a copy of her oobituary so I knew she had passed away in 2005.  Tim was able to tell me she was 94.  She had gone out on the porch to feed the cats and  had somehow fallen.  Minnie also was in her 90's at the time of her death.  Both were well loved ladies.

So Monday I will get the photo and other materials in the mail to their new home.  I can get a copy made of the picture and keep that one instead.  I'm sure the original will be cherished.
