My grandmother was a “proper” lady, so this public display of affection shows a rarely seen side of the wise and nurturing matriarch I knew. In this photo I am able to see more than just glimpses gleaned from family stories and glances snuck that I caught sometimes of the dreamy girl that fell in love with my grandfather, raised 10 children with him, and stayed married to him for over 50 years. I see a multi-faceted woman the likes of which I can only aspire to be. -Darlene Scott
