The above photo is of my baby Al Aldrich – and – he is in the arms of his “Grandma Louise” – who is also my “Mother-in-law” and also the “MOTHER” of my husband “LEE G. ALDRICH Sr” – and this special “picture” taking is one of many “first photos ” to be taken – since baby, Al was just born on the 9th of January – and his “Grandma Louise” made a special trip from Saint Louis, Missouri – – just to visit us in Fort Lauderdale, Florida — – since – this is a very special occasion for all of us!
“Grandma Louise” was called by all of us – “Grandma Lulu” as this was so much easier for the little children to say and then – we would know exactly which “Grandma” they were talking to and or about. In this picture Grandma Lulu is in her 80’s – and she enjoyed traveling by “Greyhound Bus” – and that is because she said she like to meet new people and talk with them all the way – wherever she was going? The only thing that I remember about her likening to talk – that is in the house – she was unable to hear me – unless I was whispering?? That was something that I could never figure out?? But – when you stop to think about it – when you do not want to talk – you just do not answer – and give a silly look – and everyone takes it for granted – you are a little on the hard of hearing side??
Just thought that I would include Grandma Lulu’s full name for those that might think that they know her – – – and want to be for sure – – Louise Vosmeyer Aldrich Stanley. Louise was married to Mr. Aldrich – and something happened where he worked – that caused his death. So, after some years – Louise was fortunate to meet a Fire Chief – at the local – Fire House near where she was living with her ten children – and Mr Stanley did like children – and he then married and had a full and happy FAMILY with Louis – and believe it – they were blessed with two more children – – – Ralph Stanley and Florence Stanley LaFevre.
“Happy Mother’s Day” to all our Mothers – MOTHER-in-laws – and Grandmas – – – because without all of you – to be where you are and always right there – – to help all of us – – to be where we should be – – You all deserve a “GOLD STAR” on your report cards!
