This is a photo of my great-grandmother when she was about 6 months old. The picture is still in amazing condition even though it is 109 yrs old. The photo is on a cardboard background of some sort and the photos is almost like a paper built in the board. It even has embossing on the edges. My great-grandma was everything to me and I loved her dearly. I lost her to Cancer when I was 9 yrs old and miss her so very much. She taught me the meaning of "LOVE", how to cook, what family meant and lots of other small and simple things. She always kept me out of trouble too. Every birthday she would make me a homemade German Chocolate Cake and I have not had one for my birthday since.
