Today, I just want to share some pictures of the McCoys.
The story of my grandparents’ meeting and marriage is definitely an enjoyable one.
They were strangers when they married, but they lasted over 50 years before my grandfather passed away. When I ask Grandma how they did it, her response is, “We loved each other.” They didn’t just get angry and throw in the towel. They worked at their marriage. They didn’t have money to go on vacations. They didn’t have a lavish wedding. They lived several years without a car. But, they made it.
I’ve always admired that they persevered through hardships. There was a time where Grandma thought Papaw wouldn’t return when the ship he was on was hit by a Kamikaze aircraft. As we’re all aware, cell phones didn’t exist, so she was left for days not sure if her husband was alive. Ultimately, she received a telegram indicating that he was found.
To say that my grandmother is a wonderful person is an understatement. She is caring, forgiving, a generous soul. She is just a beautiful person. She’s not a rule breaker, so seeing this picture makes me laugh.
Grandma being a badass, leaning on the “Keep off Grass” sign. Such a rebel.
