My Favorite Picture Of My Grandmother, 1942. She's Strong, Raised Six Children On Her Own After Leaving An Alcoholic Husband. Worked 7 Days A Week As A Cook In A Gas Station From 3 Am - 5 Pm. I Would Stay Every Weekend With Her And Sleep On The Floor Of The Gas Station Back Then. She's Amazing
My Crazy Grandfather
This is my crazy grandfather. Hands down, the funniest old coot that's ever existed. On his deathbed, he told us (his grandkids) "Don't be cheap. Spend 25 cents and buy the paper. The Times promised me a big spread." He worked as a photographer for the LA Times for 50+ years and had many famous photos, including the first published photo of an atomic bomb explosion.
He was a man of many stories and an unforgettable sense of humor. After laying his wife and two sons to rest, he stayed strong and kept his spirit high. He battled prostate cancer for 20+ years and lived to see his 92nd birthday and his great grandchildren. RIP Grandpa
