“These static images have the uncanny ability to jar the memory and bring places and people back to life. They bridge the present with the past.” —Isabel Lopez

This is my beautiful grandmother on Easter Day, 1961. She was only 43 years old when this photo was taken. She didn’t try to hide the gray in her hair; she was a classic beauty.

My grandfather sold Buicks so they always had a new one, just like this.

My memory of my grandmother is that she was an artistic person, very much a creative spirit. In fact, I still have a lot of her paintings hanging in my own house today. ~shared by @threecees704
