Four Generations: Allbrittons

Jackson, MS: Granddaddy Claude

Chase with Great Granddady Claude....
If only she was old enough to try his homemade pickles and fudge.

Mobile, AL: Grandmama Ann & Granddaddy Herbert

Lots of love for our little one...

Chase just couldn't get enough of Granddaddy Herbert's stories and had lots to say to Grandmamma Ann.

Birmingham, AL: Grandparents Papa-Joe and Kar-Kar

Big kisses from Brian's parents....

Baltimore, MD: The Downings

In June, Chase enjoyed her second trans-Atlantic flight.

We had a short visit with my grandparents, uncles and aunt in Maryland before flying down South to visit Brian's folks in Alabama and Mississippi.

Here are pics from Maryland....

Mary The Great

I am deeply saddened to report that just over a week ago, Chase's Great Grandmother, otherwise known as "Mary The Great," passed away.

Mary The Great was more than great, she was incredible. She was sharp as a tack, even at 98. Poised, proper and an uber perfectionist. She was stronger and more determined than any woman I have ever met. She always knew just what to say to make me smile when I was sad and find my way when I felt lost.

I will miss her so much.
