|Mike, Michele and Jason Kurvink|
A long-time mystery has finally been solved. I thought my dad had told me this plate had belonged to my maternal grandmother, Nannie (Becker) Flanders. Many years ago I showed it to my mother Ruby (Flanders) Craine who said she didn't recognize it. I was disappointed that it hadn't been an heirloom of my Flanders grandparents.
I'm happy today to realize this plate belonged to my dear Grandma Mollie Margheim, the best grandma any child could have. So while today I acknowledge the sorrow I feel for my cousin Michele at the passing of her dear husband Michael, I recognize a spark of joy at identifying a precious heirloom from my grandparents. At this point in my life, that's a precious thing!
