I don't really like this picture. It is a little dagger in my heart every time I see it.
Strange, I know. It's a cute little boy and a beautiful young woman.
But look closely at the left side. Notice the ragged edge?
This is only 2/3 of the original picture.
This is my grandfather and his mother. His father was on the other side.
He left probably not long after this picture was taken. And my grandfather never saw him again.
I don't know who physically removed him from the picture, but it makes me sad.
(PS- I did find an original copy of the picture including my great-grandfather.)
