    In college I did a project like this. We had the letters my grandpa wrote while courting my grandma and leading up to the wedding. I transcribed them with two different fonts and had relatives write memories of my grandparents and I included those. I need to find a copy, since I never kept one for myself. My dad was the youngest of 4 kids and my grandpa married relatively “late” for the time period so when I was born my grandparents were already in their 70’s (lived to be in their 90’s). The letters were from late 1920s/early 1930’s (my grandpa was born in 1899). Our oldest daughter who was named after my grandma will inherit her original engagement ring from back then.

    Granted, its been awhile since I have held a newborn, but goodness, he is tiny and squishy, and limp. Was super scared about moving around with him.

    my youngest grandparent was born in 1900. She was the one I was scared of. For moms funeral I found moms and her moms wedding rings. I gave them to my surviving sister, she wanted them. Moms mom was the nice one.

    Well, Mom passed away 2 hours ago. Did not expect that today but the reason I wanted to be here was she was being put under for the procedure today and you never know how an elderly person will react to anesthesia.

    The doctor came in after the procedure and everything sounded promising. After that all downhill.

    Had a new hire come and shadow me on my project today. It's a fairly laid back but government setting and I told them business casual when the shadow asked about dress code.

    They showed up in ripped jeans and a large graphic t shirt from some band. ‍♂️ I had to pull them aside and tell them to go back to the hotel to put on something else.

    Do they not teach or talk about business etiquette anymore in college?

    My sympathies bud. It’s not easy no matter the age. Still getting used to my mom not being around, today is a type of day I would have spent extra time with her due to weather. Think of the good times you had.

    This commercial where they show the woman growing up and meeting her goals and then a bank telling her she has enough to have her own business, a juice bar, obviously doesn’t know what a juice bar is.

    So sorry for you! Glad you were there, although it must have been hard to handle.

    Gr8, I lost my Dad 13 years ago, but I hear his voice in my head every day. I'm sure the memories of your Mom will stay bright in your head forever, too. The pain you feel is the result of the love you had for her, and she for you.

    We have a "dress for your day" policy. Basically be smart, dress nice/more formal if you have customers but other than that just be smart. Sometimes interesting to see who pushes the lines a little more. Basically has resulted in everyone wearing jeans pretty much every day.
