But since today is Saint Patrick's Day and a very meaningful holiday to me, I thought I share the picture now and start a new tradition with "Memory Monday" and actually share the memory/story behind the picture.
As I've written in the past, I was extremely close to my Grandpa Egan. In my eyes he was an Irish gentleman through in through, and today is the day he passed away 23 years ago.
I still remember all of the details of 3/16/1991 and 3/17/1991 like they were yesterday. But I don't really want to talk about those days.
I of course don't remember the picture above, but one of the things I do love about that picture is that it was taken at my parents house. Where my parents still live, and still have that break fireplace.
One trait that I have of my Grandpa's is his organization to document things. The back of this photo has all of the details of this photo, along with some code in the bottom left corner.
If I had to take a guess the:
It's Margaret's, Patti's, Kathleen's, and Barbara's kids that are in the photo.
Not too sure the meaning behind the "Grandma" since my Grandma Egan passed away when my mom was 18, well before I was born. And then "Michelle" written below that, who is the youngest of the Egan siblings.
Or the "18A-19" is the upper left hand corner. Not too sure what that means either.

He was a great Grandpa and I miss him.
