Internet Surprise

Every once in a while, when you least expect it, an internet surprise occurs.  I had one today and I am so excited.  I was doing an internet search for one of my husband's family members and up pops the most marvelous photograph.  I am so psyched! It's one thing to see names and dates, but to finally see faces, what a joy. So here is the photo.

Boy, I love the internet!
