Our Granddad, Charles Edward Niesen, was a kid at heart. A lifelong St. Louis baseball fan – first Browns, then Cardinals – “Eddie” always had his scorecard out at games, keeping track of every play.
He showed the same joyful, longterm commitment to his family. He and Grandma would welcome us into their home with hugs, and chili-mac or pizza.
As we drove away to our lives elsewhere, they always stood on their front porch, waving goodbye until we were out of sight. They cherished every moment with us.
After Granddad died, we went through our old family photos and found his highlight reel. They’re all one-of-a-kind images, of a life well-lived (and loved). Photographs are memories made visible. And tangible.
Save them. ~ shared by @rachellacour
