Photo of my Swedish grandmother, while visiting my parents in Florida in the early 1950's. I remember visiting her in what they called the servant's quarters at an estate in Mt. Kisco, New York, in 1944 where my grandfather worked. At that time she had already lost two of three sons that had come with her to the United States through Ellis Island, Evald and Stig, one to food poisoning in a middle school and the other to polio while in high school.
Although I was only about three years old at the time, I remember her saying nothing as tears ran down her face while I was sitting with her at a small, white metal kitchen table, her cigarette smoke twisting its way along her sad face. I later discovered they had gotten word that their third son was missing off of Okinawa in WWII.
He was eventually found, having to go across the island with the Marines after the shore boat he was driving died on the beach.
