William Jonathan Barnes, later known as my “Grandaddy Billy,” as a young man decked out in his Navy uniform.
The Virginia boy was sent to a naval base in California, where he met the love of his life, my grandmother Eleanor.
Married young, but loving like old souls, their legacy inspired me to build We Were Here and this community.
My grandmother unearthed this photo from her jewelry box. I’d never seen it until my grandfather died in September 2013. It was like discovering buried treasure.
