This timeless picture shows the two young lovers Andy and Birdie Veach. The time was August 24, 1924. They had been married for thirteen months. Birdie had just seen her eighteenth birthday.

I suppose it's normal to forget that your grandparents were once young. Long before you are hardened with life experience, most everyone has a heart that feels love, passion and tenderness. I knew my grandfather as a gruff, abrupt man who didn't show affection. Yet look how tenderly he holds his young wife's hand in his and how tenderly she embraces his waist with her right hand. May God bless their memories.
