“Turkey Through a Straw” No Deal Breaker

img_0207

For whatever reason, our family didn’t take any photos of the many Thanksgivings that we spent at Fairhaven, the retirement home in Rockford, Ill., where my Grandma Alida G. Mellskog lived from 1973 until her death in 1993. However, this photo — one shot during a Christmas gathering in the early 1970s at her home in Evanston, Ill. — shows her at my side to play with my brother and my cousins.
