Father's Day

Old as she was she still missed her Daddy sometimes.

Happy Father's Day! Miss you Dad!

Sharing a cute photo of cousin Evelyn R. Soderstrom Eckberg
Many of the records I have found show her middle initial to be "R".
Anyone know what the "R" stands for?
I am guessing Ruth, for her mother
my great aunt Ruth Abrahamson Soderstrom

Tack så mycket Evelyn
for sharing your Soderstrom memories
and photos with the extended family!
