Back in the day, family portraits were taken. My grandpa (far right) was a second generation cheese maker and had his own factory. You may have heard of Laack's Cheese if you are from around here. (Those are his descendants.) Mom had four brothers. One died as a young married man with a child. He died from pneumonia. Mom is the youngest of the girls (far left). I think this picture was taken circa 1933. She wore the same dress for her confirmation picture.
Tomorrow we are going to the cemetery. My sister and brother, his wife, my husband and maybe our son. It will be the first time since Mom's passing.
