Florence Polly (aka "Granny Hide" or "Mamaw" to her grandchildren) 1903-1989 and her daughter Florence Edna ("Granny" to my children) 1922 - 2001. Just some prettys we found in their Bibles after they were gone.....
The three crosses are dated on the backs. The smallest "Have Faith In God" is dated 1905 and "To Elza from Russell" on the back. Elza was Florence Polly's second husband, Elza Chandler Scott, and the only grandfather my husband and his siblings ever knew. The "Happy Easter" cross is dated May 13, 1935 and also says "The Lord is risen, indeed. ~Luke 24:34" and "To Florence Edna from Pop Momma". The largest cross with the roses is dated Dec. 14, 1954 and says "To one of the best helpers I have ever had. God Bless You! S.M.J."
