Grandpa and Grandma

The above picture is my Grandpa and Grandma Potter( Martin and Ione) I have never seen a picture of Grandpa before, but thanks to Facebook I have been able to make connections with family members that I have never met in person. One of his Great grand daughters sent us the picture. This couple had 8 children. Ernest, Letha (my mom)Murl, Florence, Rhuel, Ted, Martha and Naomi. They are all now deceased. 
 When I was born they lived in Colorado and we lived in Oklahoma. I only saw him a few times in my life, and he died in 1939 at age 59 from a stroke.We have a few pictures of Grandma, but didn't have one of Grandpa. It doesn't look as though Grandpa has any shoes on, but I am not sure. Grandma may have heels on, but she was very short so she may have been trying to get up there a little higher.Time moves on, and now I have added to the clan. I have 3 children, 6 granddaughters,and 6 great grandchildren, My brother's and sister have also done their share adding to the family tree.
This next one is my parents and siblings taken a few years ago. 
Dennis, Letha, Carol, Gene, Hollis, Bennie, Lorrene, Ray, Cecil.
Now deceased ( Dennis, Letha, Bennie, Cecil) (and now, Ray 8/2014)
