This is sort of a typical Richard picture, circa 1989
My brothers were 12 and 14 when I came along so I don't have any memories of them when they were very young except for what I have gleaned from family photos.
Richard and our pretty mother. I'm guessing he was about 9 months old. So, Winter of 1946?
Same hat and coat. Must be the same day, but this is of course taken with his proud father.
Finding pictures of my brother in his younger years without asking him for them was somewhat difficult, but I managed to find some amongst some pictures my mother had kept and not lost in a move.
This picture is a better one that shows Richard and our Grandma Hughes (Mary). Richard, Mark (our brother) and I were all born very blonde. Richard has kept the blue/grey eyes that he had as a baby, which he shared with his father.
Cute Richard with our mother and her father, John Anderson. This is the only picture I have of my grandfather. I think his Swedish heritage really showed up in his first grandson with his blue eyes and blonde hair. Richard's middle name is John, in honor of his grandfather.
Here we are in 1988 almost 30 years later. Mark, Richard, The Boston Lady (pregnant with The Maven)
