Forget Me Not: Thomas K. Mark, 1975 OH

Did you meet any of your great grandparents? I was able to meet my paternal grandmother's parents, Thomas & Regina (Gruissy) Mark who lived in Ohio. We did not go to Ohio often. I don't remember Regina, who died when I was six years old but I remember 'Grandpa Mark', He lived to be 95. I am in this photo, standing behind my paternal grandmother and her father. He was a soft spoken man.
