Celebrating Grandmother Alverta


This is my great grandmother Alverta standing in the center of this photo. As we celebrate National Women' History Montth I choose to celebrate Grandma Vertie for the woman she was. She raised many children while surviving in the cold Virginia mountains. I have been told that she was as sweet as sugar and that she always managed to find a little bit of candy to share with her grandkids. Here is to you Grandma Vertie for the hard work, for surviving the odds, for being a wonderful mother and grandmother and for being You! I would love to have known you!
Sincerely and with much love, your Grandchild
