This studio photograph is wonderful. I believe it was taken for Kathleen's First Holy Communion. She is holding a prayer book in one hand and flowers in the other. Her lacy dress is topped off with flowers in her hair.
My great aunt's birthday is coming soon, on Halloween. The family called her 'Billie.' She had an independent spirit. She lived to be 91, outliving her siblings and her niece (my mom). She was a private person and shared limited family stories.
I like this photo of her as a young girl. I wish I could step into this photo and talk to her.
