Most of the time I separate my professional and personal life but sometimes the lines blur and the death of my Great Aunt Frances Reid is one of those times.
The world knew her as Alice Horton on DAYS OF OUR LIVES but to me she was Aunt Francie. I could go on and on with ridiculously funny stories of things she would say to us when we were kids and someday I'll share some of those stories.
In the television world she was the quintessential grandmother and in real life she was anything but. Funny how what's real and what's on television can be so different.
I have always been the archivist and historian in my family. I'm not sure if that has to do with my love of photography or just that I am an incredibly nostalgic person by nature.
This is one of my favorite early photographs of Francie. I have no idea who took the photograph or what year it was.
As things pop in my head or photographs of her come out of boxes in my house there will be more blog entries.
