Family Photos are Magic Mirrors that Reveal Reflections of Our Family History
My grandma loved style, and she had loads of it.
Knowing how poor her family was, I marvel at how put together she always managed to be, without exception.
She was a huge fan of lipstick and wore it until the day she left us at age 95. I still have a gold tube of her favorite: Estee Lauder’s “Candy.”
My family always remarks on how much I look like Lillian, but it’s only when I put on a dark red lipstick and catch myself in the mirror that I freeze in my tracks, thinking I’ve just seen her face instead of mine.
