Grandpa Petty with Granny

Granny and Grandpa (Walter and Virlie) Petty in old age. His face is so shadowed you can't see him well but it's a good picture of her. We have several other pictures of him but few of her.

A snapshot of Grandpa Petty with Mama, Rozellah, and her "sister-cousin" Dorothy when they were very small.

This picture disproves Mama's claim that she was "never a teenager."

Rozellah did not mean it literally when she said, "I was never a teenager."  What she meant was that, when she was young, people were not categorized that way.  People of all ages were just people.
