My husband shared a picture a friend had sent him. It was a family photo taken 60 years ago. Front and center stood the grandmother in her dark suit, corsage at the shoulder, and sensible shoes. The bun we could not see but knew was there was covered by a black hat and a veil. The stern look on her face told us that she was not to be trifled with and her face was sunken telling a tale of false teeth and yearning for corn on the cob. She was the quintessential grandmother of her era. There are very few like her left in this day and age.
