Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Saturday Snapshot: November 26

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click picture for close-up).


I've missed a couple of Saturdays...first because of a quick trip home two Saturdays ago when my grandpa was put in the hospital and then last Saturday because I was preparing to go home for his funeral. This is just a simple post in memory of my grandpa, Donald Ingols (April 28, 1916 - November 18, 2011).

Thank you to everyone for your good wishes and condolences.

So sorry to hear about your grandpa. I like the picture..is that a painting or a photograph (or I guess a photograph of a painting)?

Bev Hankins said...

@Lisa: It's a studio photo. It was taken several years ago when my grandparents had pictures taken for their 50th Anniversary.

So sorry for your loss. He was born the same year as my father (he passed in 1988).

Your grandpa looks like he knew how to have fun.

A grand man and a grandfather. What a long life he lived. Imagine all the things he experienced during his life time in terms of inventions. I am sorry for your loss but also celebrate with you the life of a great man!
