Family Album



Pictures in the family book.
It's time to take another look.
That's Grandpa Billy when he had his farm.
Yes, and Grandma Sarah holding his arm.

Look at little Mary, isn't she sweet?
Dressed for her First Communion, oh so neat.
Uncle John, when he played football.
Cousin George, standing by a wall.

Daddy Roger, when he returned from the
war in France.
Grandma Trude, teaching children how to
dance.
So many people I don't even know.
Close the book, it's time to go.
