    I don't think I look anything like my grammy, but I will share a few photos of her and my papa. Papa passed away when I was under 2 years old and grammy passed away this January. These are my father's parents. Oh, I stole these photos off of my cousin's Facebook page. She was showing how she fixed the scratches on these photos.

    Not much resemblance.

    Thank you, ladies. I think I really needed to see everyone with their nans. My great grandmother just died a few months ago and reading this post allowed me to have a good cry about it all. It sounds silly, but I think I needed it.

    Here's a photo of my Oma on her nurse's pass from WWII. It was one of the first times if seen young, young, 1940s her.


    She raised me for the first 10 years of my life and I think here in this photo from the 90s of little me and her you can see the similarities.


    I do think I look a lot like one of my Oma's sisters daughters, all the way on the left in this photo.


    And here's little old me with the hubby for comparison. :)


    Thanks for reading!

    I think you have your grandmother's eyes, SacredFemme. That part of your face is very similar.

    I am so sorry to hear of her passing, but I am happy that you have so many good memories, and that you shared some of your relationship with us through these pictures. :)

    MarieAnne, it looks like you share features in common with your grandmother and - in particular from that angle - her smile!

    My paternal grandmother, who my aunt thinks I greatly resemble, particularly when we were adolescents (don't have a scanned photo from then):
    But there's also more than a touch of my maternal Nana too, I suspect - the lady who instilled in me my love of the 1920s:
