My Dad 6 years old. We all cried like babies when we found what his mother had written on the back side of this photo (taken in 1932): “My dear, beloved, precious Boy! I pray to God, that he will hold his hand over you and bless you all days. Thousand kisses and loving greetings from Mother. June 12th 1938.”
She passed when he was 15, in Dec. 1941.

Jan. 1901), and my great grandmother Marie (b. 1875) with her daughter Anny (b. Apr. 1901). Gustaf was the father of Martha, Anna, Johanne Elisabeth and Marie, and he lost his wife Anna Nilsson in 1894. Gustaf and his wife were both born in Sweden.
