Today I’m remembering (even more so than usual) my mom and my aunt, the twins. They would have been 83 years old today. Beulah, my mom, is on the left. And Beatrice, her twin, is to the right.
Here are the twins, with their older sister, Mary Ellen. Kids haven’t changed much in 80 years. Giant cardboard boxes are still a treasure! To be honest, I’m not sure which twin is which in this picture lol.
Here, I can tell them apart. Aunt Bea, eyes open – mom, eyes shut. I literally just noticed a woman sitting on a porch swing, at the left hand side of the picture. It doesn’t look like my Nan Nan. It could be Grandma Pierce. Hmmmm
Here are the twins in high school. Mom’s in the pearls, bobby socks and penny loafers. Aunt Bea, white collar blouse, bobby socks and penny loafers, is in the middle. And I think Janie Hite, their friend, is on the end wearing saddle shoes. It’s small town America folks, where else would you go to pose for pictures, besides the cemetery.
Here is my gorgeous Aunt Bea; always so very, very, good to me.
And my beautiful mother. To say I miss her would be an understatement.
This is mom and I, in a photo booth, at the Woolworth’s Drug Store. We had just eaten lunch at the counter. A grilled cheese sandwich and a Coke, what a treat! I know I was no more than 4 years old in this picture. I can tell from the “pixie” hair cuts we were both sporting, lol.
My mom and Aunt Bea, the twins.
Terribly missed, always remembered and forever loved!
