I am pleased to report that we have reached a milestone on this blog! We have reached Full Circle 100.
Yesterday my husband and I were invited to lunch by Missy and Chad. They drove up to Park Rapids and we had a lovely lunch and visit.
It seems they did a search for relatives on the internet and found a photo of Chad’s Grandmother and a handwritten note by his Great Grandmother here on Forgotten Old Photos.. They weren’t so sure what to do. Missy left a message on the blog and I contacted her through email.
They would like to find out more about their family and hope to do some more research.
This was a photo featured in 2010. It was the only photo where I have found a note tucked in behind the photo. Many of you long time readers will remember it I am sure.
It took a long time for this Full Circle to be completed.
Missy and Chad want to thank Iggy for his research, it was his research that helped find Alta and her daughter Marie. The only memories Chad has of his Grandmother are when she was in the Nursing Home.
I had to smile. Some relatives of Chads are skeptical, I hope it will help when they see Alta’s handwriting. They also figured I would charge a huge fee for the photo. No so…I mail one photo to families free of charge although I appreciate reimbursement for postage and handling.. or lunch in town! ( Just kidding) I think of these forgotten photos as a kindness to pass along someday.
On the way up north Missy and Chad stopped for a break and had a small lunch…as it turns out another couple paid for their lunch…gestures of kindness follow a person everywhere!
I am thrilled to return this photo to family! This Full Circle 100 marks 199 photos that have been returned to family.
Thanks for stopping by.
