I was recently given some pictures of my great grandparents, Hattie and Alva Chiles! I never got to meet my mom's grandmother. She passed away when my mom was a teenager. Looking at her kindly face, and knowing how much she was loved by my mom and grandma, I know I would have loved her too. My great grandfather was very old when I was born. He was a little scary, so I didn't get to know him too well.
