One of Mom's Favorite Quotes
Inside one of my Mom's family history notebooks is this quote:
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die."
My mom, Joyce Parker Orshoski, is in the picture at the left, at her great grandfather's house on Shelby Street in the 1940s. She always told me she heard that quote in the pilot of the Waltons, but I found it attributed to Thomas Campbell. Mom loved family history, and we often visited cemeteries and had talks about our ancestors, and what life was like in the "good old days."
Recently my niece, who was very close to her Nana O., had this quote tattooed on her leg!
