“How can the dead be truly dead when they are still walking in my heart?”
– Clock Without Hands, Carson McCullers
(The quote is from the book that I’m reading at the moment.)
(The photograph is of my maternal grandparents on their wedding day. I never met my Grandfather, but have always wondered about him. When they were courting, the usual Catholic v Church of England tension was going on within the families, and my Grandfather said he would never marry while his (disapproving) mother was still alive. After she died, they married, but my Gran wore a grey dress instead of a white one out of respect for her recently deceased mother-in-law. I think this quite a dignified and humble gesture on her part.)
Love this quote-so very deep!
Me too 🙂
What a lovely photograph. What a blessing to have a photo of your grandparents! My maternal grandparents divorced, so their wedding photos might be in pieces somewhere.
