Legacy of Love, Joy and Laughter

This is my absolute, hands down, favorite photo of my Mother, Uncle, Grandmother and Grandfather. The Sevald Family. It is a posed portrait studio but none the less it shows the true nature of the family. Joy. How often in older photos so you see everyone smiling? My grandparents leaning in toward their children and each other, my mothers hand on her father's knee and my uncle standing proudly behind grinning widely. This was a happy loving family. And they all knew how to laugh,.... lots. That is the sort of legacy I am most thankful for today.
