I scanned this picture of my grandmother today. We had had
this picture for a long time, and I always assumed the child
was my dad's brother that died at about that age; but just
recently found out that the little boy was her nephew; the
last name was Isaacs. Thanks for telling me that your dad
named his first daughter Josie. My dad (Harrison Jones)
was only 8 when she died but he always talked about what
a kind and resourceful person she was. Is your sister, Josie,
still around?
