An emotional day.
Received from a granddaughter of an aunt that passed away last spring a huge box of things that had belonged to my uncle. His diplomas from grade school, high school college and then his masters and doctorate degrees. But, the emotional thing was the hundreds of pictures of my mother and other family pictures. I never knew my mother, she died when I was 2 months old but now I have pictures of her from babyhood to an adult and there are many of them.
Also grandma and granddad have a great many pictures too. Unfortunately a great many of these have no identification. I'm busy writing on the backs of them trying to put down names and approximate dates.
I really didn't think something like that could get to me emotionally but it did.
Frankly, I'm kind of a wreck right now. I never thought something like that would get to me.
