Today would've been my grandmother's 100th birthday. So, happy birthday, Grammy! I still find it amazing that I now have known people who were born 100 years ago. I mean, my great-aunt was born in 1896, but I didn't know her well like my grandma.
I think that if my grandma were alive, I'd like to take her out to Anderson's and get an ice cream cone. She loved ice cream, and I don't think she minded the company either.
In honor of my grandma, Bernice Grace Rech Kain, I present you with a few of my favorite photos of her.
As a baby:
At Crystal Beach in 1932 when she was dating my grandfather:
At the Hotel Riverside in Cambridge Springs, PA (the original "Lake George") with my grandfather in 1938:
At the Hotel Riverside again in 1957:
This is how I remember her the best, from 1990:
And on my dad's 50th birthday, in 1996:
