Mum at age of 14 and the family. (Her mother at 43, brother 17, father 54.)

If they knew their future... I'm sure they thought the difficulties ended (deaths of their newborn babies, worldwide crises, the loss of their wealth) and the rest of their lives would be happy, at least content. But more losses, pain and misery came. Now I can understand more their lives than in my younger years.

(Grandma gave birth to four children, she lost two of them.)
