quingie


i know it's a weird name, but that's what we've always called my grandma.


she was a gardener, a mother of 12 kids, a very hard worker, and a writer.


i didn't know her very well until i moved here a few years ago. she called every once in a while to check up on us and stopped by for 5 minute visits sometimes.


she lived for over 89 years. i'm glad she can be with my grandpa now who died in 1982.

That is such a great picture. Was she the piano player?

Who is Jonathan Canlas? That picture is amazing. I've never seen it. Where did you get it?

leigh said...

no, not the piano player.

jonathan canlas took the photos at mindy's wedding (where this is from) and he took our family photos and 2 of dan's sisters' weddings. he took the one of me on my profile.

Jonathan Canlas is in my sisters ward and his wife (Callie) is my sister Heather's best friend & in my bunco group! What a small world. I know he is a well known photographer who gets to travel the world! How lucky for you to have him! That picture really is outstanding!
