My Valentines



These brothers lost their mother when they were four and one. They had a difficult childhood. William Bertram Etter, on the left, was the oldest. I never knew him. He died in 1944. The other one, on the right, was my grandfather, Hugh Robert Etter. I cherish all he taught me!

I wonder if this was at their mother's funeral? My mother was named Lorena after her grandmother that she never knew, Lorena Ellison.
