Four Generations

This is a four generation picture.  But to me it is much more than that.  These are my ancestors.  It is a picture of my bloodline.  It is where I came from; my roots.

The baby in this picture is my father, Jim.  My grandfather Ed, is standing behind his mother Edna, my great-grandmother.  Her mother, my great, great-grandmother is also standing behind her.

I am so lucky in that I knew everyone in this picture except for my great, great-grandmother.  I love all these people.  They all had a part in making me who I am today.  Even Gran Halverson who I never knew, at least I don’t remember, shaped the people who shaped me.

Years have come and gone much to quickly, and now that baby, is the great-grandfather in another four generation picture.
