My First Communion


Grandma Easson made this dress for me. The lace on the dress was from my mother's wedding gown. 

At the time I hated it because it did not look exactly like all the other dresses my friends were wearing for first communions.

This is the last picture I have of my mother and me together. She died that autumn.
