|Omar Williams family, circa 1943-1945 in Louisiana.|
This is my mother's family. The date given in the caption is a guess based on my mother's apparent age in the photo. The girls are all still living, so I'll leave out details on them. I have met everyone in this picture except the woman in the middle in back, Emma Gertrude (McMurry) Williams. Emma died young, in 1950, when my mother was just a young teen. She's my only grandparent I never met. I did meet my grandfather, Omar, a number of times, but because I lived in Minnesota and he lived in Louisiana, it was a rare thing. The last time I saw him was in 1980, we visited when I was 14. Obviously I have few memories of him. Omar died in 1985.
