Bye Beppe

This is my paternal grandmother, my Beppe, who died on Saturday aged 84. She is the first of my grandparents to pass away. I love this photo of her; she is about 18, pumping water in her clogs (as one did in the Netherlands). We were never particularly close and I'm sad and sorry that we never shared more about ourselves. I think we both missed out. Bye Beppe.

I'm sorry your Beppe has passed, Naomi. Gosh, she looks remarkably like you though. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts. xx

What a great photo - I bet she turned into a great old lady. I'm sorry to hear she has gone. Hugs.
