Smacksy Saturday Photo: My Godfather


This photo was taken in 1964 on the day of my christening. The very young couple on the left are my parents. The one holding me is my dad's sister, my Godmother, Aunt Sophie. Next to her is my Godfather, Uncle Daryl. My uncle passed away yesterday at the age of eighty-eight. He will be missed.

  3. My condolences on the loss of your uncle/godfather. His life was long; I hope it was full as well.

    PS. That is QUITE the Jiffy Pop hat on your aunt, though. ;) Ah, the sixties.....
