Mom Golden On A Ruby Tuesday With Her Book Of Memories


bernie thought it a very good idea that we should scan mom golden's many photo albums and so i have put a few photos in here...mom golden has over one hundred albums and there is not a special time in each book! old and new pictures all mixed together in one happy jumble!

we found this baby picture of edna kathleen wells...mom golden used to be a BABY??

mom golden takes some time out of her busy life to sit in front of her wall of fame and talks to gracey.

grace used to give mom golden organ lessons and as soon as mom was able to play a few hymns, well then she quit!

because she really did need more time to love her many grandchildren.
at the time of this picture, she and dad golden had almost 20 grand kids...

alas..this pair never did give mom golden any grandchildren...

but betty and john gave her five!

mom always did have the time for her nine children and her advice was always right on target!

bernie found this picture of mom golden and her sister aunt marion in the same book as these others...

and THIS one where i caught mom golden with three of her daughters doing what she loves best..shopping second hand...i am so sure that my bestest friend felisol would surely get along just fine with mom golden!
for sure and the pair of them would be doing what they BOTH loved best!

mom golden and sixth child, gail having a serious conversation.
of all of mom golden's six girls, gail looks the most like her.

mom and dad golden's hearts were nearly broken when the lord took their eighth child, david brian to heaven one day.

ha! a mothers work is never done...here mom is tying up fourth child's, gary's shoe laces!

teddy and gary were always partners in crime!!

mom golden with her beautiful baby karen, and karen's handsome american boy friend, tim.

gramma golden with her cute grandson, darrell. beside lake erie.

mom golden and her six girls, betty, terry, sandra, gracey, gail and karen.
mom really looks she is one of our sisters instead of our mom! ...all of these kids plus the three boys mom golden took to sunday school EVERY week!

now i HAD to put in this picture of dad golden with my nephew, darrell because one time i made a post and there was not one picture of felisol's prayer child, my dad in it and so was i told!!

now when bernie finished scanning this book, i emailed many pictures to betty's face book where betty was making a face book family album and then we let mom golden view them on her lap top.
here she looks at a picture of her mom, my gramma wells..

and in this last picture you can see the tiniest smile on mom golden's face as she looks at a photo of her beloved dad....

i know that i have very little red in this ruby tuesday post but one thing that is surely red is the photo album that bernie has scanned the pictures from!

Beautiful, ruby memories, dear Terry.
You and Bernie are doing a time-consuming job.
I cannot quite believe it, a hundred albums.
Gunnar has scanned about ten, and it has taken him years. However we are very happy that he did so, because now we can share our memories when relatives allover the world.

Your mother is such an elegant and delicate lady,I wonder how she managed to give birth to and raise nine children.

I admire her grace and elegance when playing the piano. She's really looking professional.

I know for sure I'd go well along with Mom Golden, shopping second hand. We for certain would find treasures hidden in the darkness.

That shining,new laptop of hers for sure isn't bought cheap.
She is courageous, Mrs. Golden to take upon computing in her older days.

I know from my mother the old pictures are a huge incentive for learning.
My mother will only sit ringside though, while your has taken the command, like the born leader she was and still is.

A good thing my most treasured prayerchild also was allowed to join in.
If I meet him, I know I will meet him in heaven, I'll give him the hug of his life.
He's such a huggable person.
Through the years I've grown to respect and love him.

Thank you Terry bestest friend of mine for make this great family presentation.
Sharing from your most valuable belongings, once more shows that your heart is even bigger than Canada.
One down and 99 to go.
Give my best to Bernie. If he ever dream about some easy,lazy retirement days, I know reality has proven to be otherwise.
I bet he's having a good time nevertheless.
He loves your family as well.
He is your family.

Dear Terry
I was so amazed at all the lovely memories that the pictures bring up. What a beautiful family - 9 children, and Mom Golden took care of all of them very well.

Fills my heart with love and appreciation for you mom and dad...

Thank you so much for sharing the lovely pictures. That one of you and Bernie in your younger years is so precious.

Sure love seeing the look of appreciation in mom Golden's face!
